I live on a 4th floor. I call this my terrace garden.

That Staghorn is great

#58 20 days ago

I have a friend who has a stag horn in his front yard that is at least thirty years old. That is a clipping from it.

I will take pictures of their front yard and back areas.

It is is interesting to note, before I had my stroke and three brain surgeries I lived 50 years of life not really caring too much about gardens.

Now I am fascinated by them.

To be potted and that one is starting to flower…

Quoted from vid1900:

*snip*...
The local funeral home has some monster fiddles, seemingly in a pretty dark location. I asked their secret, and they said that a plant rental company swaps them out every few weeks. That's cheating.

Yes, I used to run a plant care company. We would go to wealthy peoples houses and wipe down each leaf and swap out plants when needed. They can afford and like to keep plants in their closet in the dark or in low light scenarios where they won't flourish no matter how nice you are to the plants, but always want them looking nice regardless.

Here was my last V having a snack. If they start to flower then cut it off, or it wont live long enough to tell the tale.

Updated lighting!

Home Depot has a bunch of LED plant lights (real ones that look pinkish, not scammy "full spectrum") for 75% off on clearance:

48" $19 https://brickseek.com/home-depot-inventory-checker/?sku=311637980

24" $11 https://brickseek.com/home-depot-inventory-checker/?sku=311637979

12" $6 https://brickseek.com/home-depot-inventory-checker/?sku=311633359

They are not in the clearance section, they are at the tops of the racks in lighting at every store I've seen them at.

These orchids keep coming back. This is the 5th cluster in a year.

The flower opens and closes. Looks like about three more to follow.

Hey Guys,

I don't mean to take away from the collecting aspect of our posts but...will spraying Neem oil on my indoor potted Mediterranean Fan Palm help rid this plant of those white fuzzy spots (mealy bugs or fungus)? I read about possible causes of these spots from tap water poisoning to root rot. Overall, the plant still appears in good health. I appreciate the feedback.

Neem should take care of that.

Do several treatments to make sure you get the entire lifecycle of the flies

Make sure you draw your plants out of their pots occasionally and see if they need repotting ...

Thanks Vid! I will treat with Neem. You make a good point on drawing the plant out of its pot. I had a difficult time loosening the roots while transferring to a larger pot. Good info!

Some random Huntington Library pics. I have never seen that water Lilly anywhere else.

Very cool place to visit. The private residence was 130 acres. Disneyland is about 500 acres comparatively. I wish I had an estate like the Huntington.

How do you know if it needs repotting? Does that plant need it?

#75 1 day ago
Quoted from ectobar:

How do you know if it needs repotting? Does that plant need it?

General advice, there can be exceptions:

The roots should be growing downwards, away from the plant. When they start spiraling around the base of the plant, it's time to repot

If the leaves wilt if you miss a day of watering (there might be very little soil left).

If the leaves are yellowing, and you are not overwatering.

If the thick roots are coming out of the drainage holes.

Fast growing plants may need repotting once a year (maybe even more)

Older plants that have reached full size can go many years.

-

Flex the sides a little on plastic pots and just slide them out, maybe 2x a year. You will get an eye for when you need to repot

Clear plastic pots can let you see what's going on
