New Surprises Some Plants Death Pests Fungus in Rains Red Amaranthus from Cutting Vertical self watering gardens for offices

Weeds are a blessing sometimes
Rainy season brigs in a lot of colour to out garden, in fact, my little space under the sun, terrace garden is the best during rains!The overflowing love of many plants, they have grown really quite tall and needed a as I say,  "javed habib haircut"!
Weeds are sometimes a blessing in disguise as they protect precious bulbs from rotting. Impatient self this time controlled to pluck them off, as they are protecting the bulbs indie the pot by absorbing the heavy downpour!
Happiness comes in many forms for a gardener, There are always unexpected surprises during rains!this one is growing in the pot that was adopted, (the obsessed gardener) actually picked up from junk! so waiting to see what blooms come up,

New surprise, unknown plant 
Offices and corporate houses can now have such beautiful vertical gardens. clicked this in a private corporate sector office. What a beautiful way to bring in greens in the closed air conditioned environment, a welcoming sight near the entrance these vertical gardens are self watering, that is connected with internal pipes so you just water from one opening and the whole vertical garden gets water. the plants in Awesum vibrant lime green looked quite inviting, lovely Feng shui luck, I wish more of offices bring in greens indoors!

Over grown, Fungus in rains, plants death
 Fungus and flying beetles, are on active,a few of our plants look quiet,  waiting for the stubs to spring back. Had to trim off the fungus and rotting plants stems to encourage new growth. Sada phuli always has the rotting tendency, this time had saved a few babies but my heavenly friends plucked them out!
 This time again deciding, LOL, not very much luck for promising to keep this, that I will not buy any more plants that cannot bear rains and strong sunlight, meanwhile our Brahma Kamal plant leaves began rotting, so again they have come back to the window sill.  I think all the trick is in watering, still passionately  waiting to see the blooms of The Brahma Kamal!

 Grow your vegges, no I am not much of a lover of vegetable gardening, I love exotic flowering plants. The Red Amaranthus is a healthy leafy reddish maroon plant that boasts do great health benefits. High protein, calcium and iron content.  In India we call it Maath ki bhaji. Its really very beautiful and loved the deep colour, never tasted this but loved it! so the stems bought from the market went straight to some containers and it has picked up quite well. Growing new plants from cuttings- Choose thick stems and keep tiny bits of leaves on it for the new plant to make food. rich soil, indirect sunlight.
I hope they grow well, its great as an ornamental plant! Grow some red plants, Feng Shui  for south!

 Just when it blooms, do smell the roses, its heavenly, Awesum, out of this world feeling! So one trip beginning of the day brings in a lot of refreshing energy, smell some natural fragrances and see your day go beautifully! All the Best from Rizwana!

Garden in Rains Drooping Roses Close up of Kamini flower cuttings Murraya Paniculata Changing Colours of Money Plant Lost Goldie Fish

Allamanda flowers in rain
 I LOVE RAINS! my little space looks green, fresh and fully loaded with multi colour blooms! Drooping roses, drooping Allamanda flowering stems and Awesum fragrant Kamini bush fully loaded! While the rains bring out some respite in the gardener , ME, I get a break from the daily care and watering of plants, there are also some losses, but waiting to see how the season progresses.
A strange behavior, the Allamanda and the Fragrant jasmine, Juhi climbers are giving out tall lanky stems and at the tip of ends have bunches of blooms. No, I cant trim them and they are as if connecting ends of my terrace with lovely blooms!Fragrances are at top, with so many happy roses, heavy loaded plants but a bit sad as the roses with weight of heavy rain water are drooping but they look so happy and beautiful! The photographer in me gets great shots of flowers in rains!Actually every morning I am welcomed with some great attractive flowers and the mobile has given me great flexibility to capture, and quite some time goes in speaking to them, viewing the,m, smelling  the heavenly fragrances and clicking creative captures, all from my little space under the sun!.
Drooping Allamanda Flowers 
Money plant epipremnum aureum, devil's ivy, Soloman Islands Ivy, pothos. Chlorophyll, is what we have studied in Botany, well this may be the result of changing colour in Pothos. While the money plant is quite happy and healthy some leaves are a shaded yellowish green among the vibrant greens. Maybe the amount of sunlight is reduced in rains as also some parts are covered with heavy money plant large leaves so the new ones coming are shaded.
No this is not a disease or the money plant is not sick, as in sickness the plants turn absolutely yellow , complete light yellow and drop. Its a beautiful artistic sight , money plant in shades of green!

Prayed..prayed , gave medicines...stopped food, separated her, but finally understood, her higher again put her back in her home,  but couldn't save her....., struggle went for more than three weeks but she never showed any signs of sickness except for the unusual swimming posture...RIP Goldie fish...
