Spring – new leaves

Peperomia “Hope”, 2.2019 by BN

It’s still in February but they are pretty active and producing new leaves.

They make me so happy!

Most of my plant friends are still asleep. 😴

Feel something…

I like visiting places where have some green.

I have been taking him everywhere I visited since he was born.

I don’t know how much he likes plants but am hoping that he feels something, like something nice… warm…

I love grasshouses

I got on a train from London to Cambridge with my son this morning.

We visited to Cambridge University Botanic Garden.

This place is really fascinating and I really love it there.

Especially I loved their glasshouse.

I always love greenhouses but this one was amazing.

Tropical plants section has very high humidity and nicely warm even in January.

Now I understood why my house plants stoped growing.

It was very far from their environment.

I will show more photos of our visits later…

This has great large round leaves.

A new leaf is growing too.

I can’t wait to see how it will become round and great.

Making healthy thicker leaves project #1

“Dischidia Nummularia” by Botany Notes, 11. 2018

This is my new favourite, “Dischidia Nummularia”.

I got it because they have round leaves. (You might have already known that I like the round leaves. 😄)

After I received this plant, I thought…

“Dischidia Nummularia” by Botany Notes, 11. 2018

No I can’t be like that. It should be stronger, bigger and have thicker leaves! 😔

I went to search “Dischidia Nummularia” on Google and Instagram.

A lot of photos show that thicker round leaf as they are succulent.

And very few but some photos show the leaves like “mentos”!!! 🤩

Very very thick and fat round which I was amazed by.

How could I make my thin, plastic looking leaves like that?

Apparently, they need full direct sun to do that and it’s quite difficult matter here in London but I will do my best.

I want to make my Dischidia healthier and thicker!

It became one of my missions.
