    Default My little space with plants

    After a few years growing plants I finally have a wonderful, amazing, living space.
    During the winter period in my living room orchids and adenium flowers occupy our apartment.
    Only you, lovers of plants can understand my excitement.

    On another window you can see a blooming cymbidium, yellow Hibiscus and a lot of orchids. That window is reserved for orchids because it is oriented towards NE.

    The third window as the first is facing the SW and it’s suitable for adenium, hibiscus and other exotic plants.

    Beautiful!!! You have so much light in your apartment! I think you may have given me an idea or two as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for compliments.
    During the summer most of the plants are on the terrace, and they make my little jungle.
    Photos of the terrace are from last summer. My favorite azalea, Geisha, is blooming on the terrace now.

    Everything you have done seems thoughtful and well organized. I especially like your terrace. It really looks quite lovely out there. AL

    Cactus also! I first started growing cactus because "Kids and dogs don't play in them". And I only killed about ten percent of them. I had a very large collection and a 20'x8' greenhouse built to hold my collection. Sadly, my children went on a tag collecting spree and many are now NOIDs.
