B. grandis baby leaf.

It’s interesting to see that the new leaves are red and then they change to green, only maintaining the red on the veins. Despite that, this species is well known for being hardy, tolerating high and low temperatures without serious damage. Do you have one?

Caladium ‘White Queen’ lost a lot of energy with 3 blooms that I let it grew for curiosity. What I’ve learned with that? I’m not surprised with the fact that plants spend a lot of energy when flowering, I’m just surprised with the serious impact that it had on it. It’s growing smaller leaves with less vigor and less consistency. That being said, I won’t let them bloom anymore.

Philodendron pedatum (Hook.) Kunth. This pretty aroid was gently offered by Frank (@aufildesplantes), a few months ago. It’s currently growing a new leaf and I couldn’t be more happy with this easy and yet beautiful plant. Have a nice week green pals! 🌿

This Hoya lacunosa was gently offered a few months ago by the sweet @betsybegonia as a tiny cutting with only two leaves. Look at it now! It’s growing like crazy and sprouting new stems. Can’t wait to see it flowering one day. [the dark spots are natural]

Alocasia reginula also commonly known as Alocasia “black velvet” is one of those so called ‘jewel alocasias’. It is not an easy houseplant unless you’re able to provide what it really needs. That being said, it likes warm temperatures (and this is crucial), a fast draining soil (because it rots very easily), good indirect light, a very light dose of fertilizer (only during the growth period) and humidity levels around 50-70%. They are quite slow growers, even under proper care. BUT HEYl, despite all of this, it’s really worthy and beautiful. A true jewel of nature. 💎
