?? ?? // One of the most interesting mystery palms we encountered on the journey around Masoala. In a biodiversity hotspot, it is often difficult to tell what is what - species that youre used to look different in the wild and can be at any stage of their growth. This, however, has stumped everyone I have shown thus far. Is it a Dypsis? Or a new form of Marojejya? Any help is appreciated! Claudio Zafimananjara for scale.
Plant Friends: Do you know what this is?
I bought a new weird looking plant. The label said only "mini succulent". Which is just oh so helpful. But if I'm going to continue to buy plants based on how alien they are, I'm going to have issues.
I'm wondering if it might be a variety of Jade.
...... Not to be too squishy and soft focus about this ....but this is very exciting. And I have nursed it a looooong time. Once a thriving bestie.... Saved from the brink - just its taken years. Several years. Still a bestie. Believed a Hoya. But if anyone knows it's name....... I've never seen another - and no one could tell me how to help it. It was reduced to a mere sprig - returned to water. #Hoya#mysteryplant#houseplant#garden#mysteryhoya
We had a real #mysteryplant at the plant clinic last week. Anyone car to try to ID it? PS we got the answer back this week so I can confirm if you get it right. #plantid Clues: herbaceous perennial, growing in Zone 6, height 2-3', bloom time Aug to Sept. #clematisheracleifolia
Mystery plant! This gorgeous plant arose from a tiny seedling in a pot of something else, over several months it grew & grew. Everyone had an opinion of what it could be, though none were sure!
Finally a 120cm tall hairy flower stem appeared alas I'm still none the wiser as to what it is, can anyone identify it for me please? #perennialgarden#perennials#southcoast#mysteryplant
Hoping for some plant ID help with this one from the wonderful plant community out there. I got this plant from a tiny shop in my city that advertises as a carpet store but also sells a ton of plants that the owners buy and propogate themselves. This little beauty was unlabelled and the owners had no idea what it was. From my research, the closest i can come to is non-variegated Ctenanthe Lubbersiana. Thoughts? #mysteryplant#ctenanthe#ctenanthelubbersiana#whatami
UPDATE: plant identified, Prunis lusitanica, it is toxic. More info in next post. . Fetching peachy pink on silk - from a short low temperature soak with 2018 Mystery Plant #1 . (See plant in pictures 2&3) Anyone know it? I've got more silk, wool and cotton samples soaking overnight getting darker as we speak. The shrub grows along the trestle bay on the river walk. I'm striking out on plant key out attempts so far... Help! #mysteryplant#naturaldye#experiment#silk#pinkish#pnw#railroadtracks#riverwalk#portugueselaurel
Houston weather is always odd, but I wonder if its New Years Resolution is to push the limits of it's own strangeness!
A few days ago it was warm enough to see people out and about wearing tanktops, and then last night it dropped down to freezing, and is supposed to freeze for the next couple of nights.
Yesterday we covered favorite plants, and said a sad farewell to our winter vegetable garden. The last few years we have been able to plant in November and harvest in the late winter months, and we where not expecting to have a winter this cold (Especially when early winter was so warm all our lettuce bolted!). My most tragic loss will be the milkweed that had finally formed seed pods. We were able to cover a few of the plants with the best looking pods, but the rest had to be pruned and brought in. They do make a very beautiful winter bouquet though ♡
