Watch your back Zigs - Tetters may have a sharp object handy!!
Can't let orchids stand in the way of real plants
I'm more worried about the blunt frying pan
There is just no way of keeping him under control.... he's just having a laugh, he's digging out the ginger to plant it in the tunnel. He will be turning that border into a desert to put those 'orrible spiky things in! They are not allowed in the house - that's where my orchids are (and air plants since that Droopy got me started )
I thought that they didn't look like orchids.
Well you are right on the button Logan
They don't now
Oh, dear, I had to laugh. How do you like your air plants so far?
Great! I even bought a ''posh'' sprayer for them, a small one of those pump up jobs. The wallpaper is getting a nice shower too. I have three dangly ones ( Tillandsia usneoides) and Zigs bought me one called butzii ..... to remember its name I tend to slap my backside and touch my spectacles - see what your idea has done now Droopers
I treat my orchids same as my cactus. Seems only logical for the orchids and cactus to coexist
Be ok if they were forest cacti (Tetters has got one in her garden room) but desert cacti don't live in the same place as orchids
Finished painting in the cactus house today, will take a big pic tomorrow
I have two of the T. usneoides. I curl them carefully into a big water bowl for a few hours every three to four weeks and hang them in the shower cabinet to drip off before hanging them back up in the livingroom windows. I have a spray bottle but only use that for ironing, lol. Yes, I'm terribly ashamed that I gave you the idea to grow air plants. *slaps wrist* *laughs evilly in Norwegian*
Tee hee, picturing a Norwegian laugh
As promised, a few pics of the Cactus House ....
Been digging the new bed, taking out some of the soil and adding some grit and composted bark.
Looking good Zigs
Good job! I now feel the need to build a good old-fashioned conservatory.
