Propagation By Division

 

ImageThis is the easiest way to increase one’s stock of houseplants that simply involves splitting a large plant into two or more rooted sections.

This method of propagation is suitable for plants that are usually grown in clumps such as the Umbrella Plant (Cyperus spp.), Spider plant (Chlorophytum spp.) and Mother-in-Law’s Tongue (Sansevieria spp.). These plants normally grow larger by sending up young rosettes, suckers or stems from their roots or base. In time, clumps of such plants become so large, overcrowded and unsightly. Their health can also suffer because overcrowded growth can quickly become diseased and stressed. However, the solution is easy without the need for special equipments and we get extra plants as a bonus. These young plants make ideal gifts for plant-loving neighbours and friends, and the original ‘mother’ plant will have a longer and healthier life.

Asam Laksa

 

ImageSince we are visiting Penang for the Botanical Gardens, it is fitting that we have the food that the island is famous for. We also raided our kitchen garden for the garnishes especially the kantan or the torch gingers.

Garden Art & Craft

Step By Step For Posy

 

ImageOur last visit to Garden Fairies in Bangsar gave us some ideas about the ways with water plants. We persuaded Anis to show us how to create a posy or bouquet of flowers. All you need are some of your favourite flowers, cellophane tape and scissors along with some ribbons, green tape and wires for decorating the posy. Just put the flowers one by one with the ribbons and then bind them with the cellophane tape. The size of the posy will then grow along with the amount of flowers and ribbons you put together. It is definitely a showcase for your special occasion.
