Wow! So many phalaenopses! However the Japanese have spelt phalaenopsis wrongly, which is surprising because they are usually very careful and accurate. It should be phalaenopsis instead of phaelenopsis. Did you attend the show?

 

Yes, the dick pics are mine (unless otherwise stated).

The secret is fertilization. The rule for fertilizing orchids is "weakly, weekly."

2.   http://www.orchidboard.com/community/beginner-discussion/90549-weakly-weekly-save-time-hassle.html

 

But don't bother with commercial fertilizer, just use your urine (but dilute it 1-1 with water).

Just use less urine, the smell will go away very quickly.

 

Yes, weekly. After the flowers wither, just cut off the stalk and wait for the orchid to bloom again. It will bloom as long as you fertilize regularly.

What is CP?

 

You can create space to post by creating another BW account, then uploading your pics to the new account, then they become attachments in your new account. After that, you can post here by using the URL from your new account.

Dunno the name of this plant but sometimes it produces pretty yellow flowers.

Looks like Talipariti tiliaceum, a shrubby tree related to mangrove and coastal area :) I like the purple leaf variety.

Be cool, like a breeze...

My hibiscus (note the 2 colours yellow and orange in the flower which suggests this plant is a hybrid because flowers with 2 distinct colours are usually hybrids). Moreover the flower is very large which means it is a modern hibiscus, not an original wild hibiscus.

My purple (or fuchsia if you want to show off your English) petunia. After a few months, you must trim the plant as much as possible to stimulate new growth. You can also repot what you trim off for new plants. Petunia needs quite a lot of sunlight in order to bloom and can even tolerate full sun.

My starfruit plant (looks good but tastes horrible because I should not have let the fern grow in the same pot as the starfruit and steal the nutrients in the soil from the starfruit).

Love the fiddle heads of the fern though!

In case you all don't know what Coolbriz is talking about, fiddle is another name for violin. A young fern that has not fully developed will have a slightly curled up head like the head of a violin.

Might it improve if the fern is extracted and planted in another pot, then change the soil mix or something?

It might, but there are so many ferns now in the starfruit pot that I don't have the will or energy to extract each and every one of them and repot them.

 

I don't think the present soil mix is a problem. The problem is that the ferns are basically overwhelming the starfruit plant, and choking the life out of it ever so slowly, sad to say. If I ever 狠 心 eliminate the ferns from the pot, I'm sure the starfruit plant will revive with proper care e.g. fertilization.

How about plants for the NEW YEAR.

Like the Hokkien Narcissus resembling ginger, instead of garlic.

Since the WET season has destroyed my garden.

Do you have a picture of Hokkien Narcissus? I googled but can't find it leh.

 

Sorry to hear the rain has wrecked your garden. Mind showing us a pic of your garden?

I saw these beautiful CNY plants on sale at Bedok North Street 1 Blk 213 this afternoon and just had to share with you their captivating beauty.

 

The plants with bright yellow and orange flowers are (correct me if I'm wrong) marigold.
