Fixing up a plant wall at @venasolutions in Liberty Village.

I planted this a few years back but it got a little neglected during the early stages of covid.

It's now ready after a heavy trim, some new pothos, and slow-release fertilizer.

As for those light fixture planters from last week's post: They've survived and grown! *Yes!*

Electricians are soon dropping them a few feet so they'll be farther from heat vents.

By the way, you could be working in this amazing space as Vena is hiring!

They specialize in collaborative budgeting and planning software.

Anthurium polyschistum

If you've ever wanted ma*****na leaves spreading over your walls...

First time in stock, this unusual climber has fans of foliage, shaped like open hands...or cannabis.

These push out tons of aerial roots that cling to moist surfaces such as moss poles.

Also has simple white blooms with thin sheaths.

Despite its appearance, this is not related to cannabis and should not be consumed.

Native to Northern South America.

Goes dormant in winter, dropping foliage. Water sparingly at this time. Resprouts in spring.

Native to Brazil.

Best grown like African Violets.

Design Diary

We're doing some plant work for @venasolutions, a tech company in Liberty Village.

One of the coolest installations are these light fixtures doubling as planters.

They're basically a shallow bowl, strung up nine feet in the air.

We wanted a diversity of shapes, paired with toughness, knowing these are harder to water as they are up high.

Additional challenges are: No drainage, close heat vents, and an east window.

However, given the creative energy of the space, we just have to try. The best things come from risk and experimentation.

Let's see how these turn it in a few weeks!

Plants include:
Tradescantia 'Nanouk'
Peperomia asperula
Peperomia puteolata
Senecio rowleyanus
Neoregelia 'Fireball'
Chlorophytum comosum

Albuca humilis

So weird and so cool, this succulent has tufts of grassy foliage shooting out of onion-like bulbs.

In late spring, gives triangular, white and green blooms that smell like pungent vanilla.

Goes dormant in winter, losing its leaves.

Native to South Africa.

I find these are susceptible to scale insects. However, they are easily removed from the plant.

10/20/2021

Three of the most commonly-used bonsai tools:

1. Branch Cutter
Removes large branches, giving a flush cut. Nearly invisible wound after the plant heals. Great for raw bonsai stock as you need to take off a lot of branches and have minimal wound marks.
$79.00

2. Bonsai Shear
General-purpose tool, snipping off leaves and smaller branches. Long, thin body allows for detailed cuts. The fist tool to pick up if you are a beginner.
$49.00

3. Wire Cutter
To shape bonsai trees, we wrap wire around their branches and bend, then wait a few months for it to hold. These tools are used to remove the wire. Long bodies give access and rounded tips prevent nicking bark.

While most of our houseplants are shutting down with the cold weather, there are some that shine at this time of the year.

Shown here, camellias bloom any time from now till early spring, depending on variety.

Their multi-petalled flowers are borne on waxy, serrated foliage.

These are tricky to grow, requiring bright light, high humidity, cool temperatures, and acidic soil.

You can acidify soil with rain water and powders such as iron sulphate.

Ginkgo biloba 'Troll'

Colder nights are bringing out the brilliant gold colour on these dwarf trees!

This is the final show before dropping everything in fall and going to sleep.

Ginkgo has dense, leathery leaves, shaped like fans.

It's what we call a living fossil, closely resembling what they were at the time of dinosaurs.

As a winter-hardy plant, these must be grown outdoors in summer then in a cool place for winter dormancy.

Yes, that's the name.

This orchid has upright fans of soft leaves, paired with exotic, four-inch-wide blooms.
