Flower of the Day: 18.01.2018 Kalanchoe

Kalanchoe 15.09.2017

My advice: always have a kalnchoe at home, and you will always have a flower somewhere, at least this that is my experience. These little potted flowers are reasonable in price, arrive in various colours and flower constantly. They do not demand too much attention, just soak them once a week, or when they are dry. They are the survivors and someone told me that the leaves will root to new plants. Of course they might not live forever, but a long while. They will grow taller, but keep their feet/roots to a normal size. I repotted one once, and almost killed it. They are happy plants and comfortable.

Flower of the Day: 17.01.2018 Turmeric

Turmeric 15.09.2017

I did not realise that the spice turmeric had such a lovely flower. I had added the yellow powder to various indian dishes and quite like the taste. I was surprised when our flower store was selling them and even bought one myself. They grow from tubers and mine is now reduced to a few leaves. Perhaps I might get a flower again next Summer.
