Hoya

Hoya Flowers

Hoya plant with flower cluster fully open. The Hoya is a beautiful plant, but the flowers drip a thick sticky and smelly sap. They make a mess, but don't last too long.

African Yellow Egg

African Yellow Egg

This is the most unusual of all of our current plants. The eggs are real! they start off white and as they ripen they turn to a gold/yellow color. There are several small seeds inside the pods. The plants are annuals and we have now successfully re-grown them several times, although they are quite delicate. The egg shell is hard just like a real egg! Notice the little 'spikes' around the leaves, especially where the egg joins the plant!

Black Pagoda

Black Pagoda

A hanging plant with long trailing growth and beautiful flowers.

Parrot Plant

Parrot Plant

This is also a very unusual plants. The brightly coloured flowers resemble little parrots (use your imagination)! Alas, if they dry out even once, they die!

Coffee Plant

Coffee Plant

We have actually had coffee beans on these plants. Unfortunately a 'scale' infestation meant we had to sacrifice these two large plants as we were unable to get it under control. Not to worry though, new smaller plants are coming along nicely. May be awhile before I can make a cup of coffee though! ;-)

Bamboo

Bamboo

Nice water grown bamboo shoots. Very slow growers!

Just some of our gardening pictures. More to come including a section on insects & bugs!
