Agloanema ‘pink lady’. The bright fresh new growth on plants can be just as exciting as flowers. I looks forward to see how this leaf will color up as it matures. Aglaonemas are some of the easiest houseplants to care fore. They need medium to bright light and are fairly drought tolerant,I water mine around every 10 days to 2 weeks.
We, like so many other small businesses, have had to completely change the way we operate to keep trading, during these strange, strange times.
Since lockdown began we've launched this whole new range and we really want to get the word out.

Fired a BIG batch of planters yesterday. Around 10 pm the kiln failed (most likely due to a bad thermocouple). I managed to limp it along to just about 2180 degrees F, which is just under cone 5. Came back to the studio today not expecting great results. Turns out that temp and time combo yields some pretty great results. The whole kiln looks really great. In fact, our usual pale seaweed looks almost identical to the exterior color of our studio! Our plant sale is coming this Saturday! We’ve got TONS of plants, pots, and hanging planters along with some amazing pot hangers from @hippies_daughter!!
Vor drei Jahren haben wir ein Knabenkraut erstanden mit zwei Blütenstielen. In diesem Jahr hat sie bereits sieben. 🤗
Three years ago we bought a spotted orchid with two flower stalks. This year she has seven. 🤗
Ficus triangularis variegata, this plant is growing well in bright shade and the variegation brings much appreciated brightness and colour to a shaded balcony. Even in shade this plant is growing at a steady rate and is a reliable plant for uae balconies.
aloe juvenna, the leaves of this aloe have an almost plastic quality to them. This plant is growing in a sunny window which receives some direct sunlight. Like all succulents it likes a well draining soil. I water this plant whenever the leaves start to blush orange which can be anywhere from two weeks to a month. This unique looking succulent pups readily so it is easy to propagate and pass on to friend.
Growing way too many things in pots given the low duration of sunlight in my house (not featured... the other 18 plants). But I am actively trying to keep these guys alive, despite the drastic temperature changes this month. It's my own, easily visible form of death denial, for sure.
Euphorbia trigona, commonly called the African milk tree because of the white sap they all euphorbias produce when the plant is cut. This sap is a skin irritant of varies degrees depending on the species of euphorbia. This plant was on clearance and was completely defoliated, after a few weeks it’s starting to flush new growth. This plant can take a variety of light conditions and can grow in bright shade to full sun. Indoors it requires bright light with some direct sun. All succulents like a well draining soil. I water this plant every two weeks. Most euphorbias deal with the extreme UAE heat by going dormant, it is likely that this plant will lose the majority of its leaves during the summer and if so reduce watering. You can resume watering when temperatures get cooler or you see the plant starting to put on new growth.
Croton, ( codium variegatum ), this plant has many different cultivars that vary in both colour and leaf form. In the United Arab Emirates crotons need shade during hottest summer months, for the rest of the year they require dappled shade to part sun. They also need water regularly to avoid the leaf ends turning crispy. They can also be grown indoors and require bright light in order to colour up, if the light intensity is not high enough indoors you will end up with a plant that has large green leaves instead of the vibrant color splashed leaves for which we grow this plant.
ECHEVERIA SUBSESSILIS (images tagged as 1) and ECHEVERIA BLUE BIRD (image tagged as 2)
Which one is your favourite?? .
1) The Echeveria Subsessilis is a gorgeous succulent with rosettes up to 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter, Bluish green leaves form beautiful rosettes with a tinge of pink along the leaf margins. A thick farina coating on the leaves give the plant a soft powdery look and allows the plant to tolerate full sun. It is also known as Morning Beauty. This variety is native to Mexico and often found at higher altitudes, where it enjoys dry, warm climates. It looks very similar to echeveria peacockii.
2) The Echeveria 'Blue Bird' has Large silvery blue rosette that gets bright pink margins in fall and winter. When given room to grow it can reach 10.0" in diameter, though it will stay smaller if its offsets are left to cluster. As an adaptation to full sun, 'Bluebird' has a thick, powdery coating of farina (epicutular wax) to protect it from sun burn.
Similar, yet so different, I love them 🥰. .
