People don’t seem to respect the red.
We have a newly poured concrete driveway and curb, although the strip is still to be planted.
Lesser Kudu in front of the Kalanchoe pumila.
In case you were wondering it is called the Lesser Kudu to distinguish it from the Greater Kudu. Not that the Greater Kudu is “greater” in any subjective way. Only “greater” in the purely objective criteria of size. The Lesser Kudu averages 60–100 kg while the Greater Kudu is 190–270 kg, so a big size difference. But it turns out that these are also not just smaller and larger relatives.
Continuing yesterdays theme, here are 2 more terrariums with airplants for your consideration.
Tillandsia fuchsii v. gracilis and I see we have a little bit of Reindeer Moss and some lovely rocks. Plus is that a shell i see? It is!
Tillandsia neglecta in a bit of a washed-out photo. Plus some white gravel as a base. And a couple fancy shells. We love shells! To be honest, we found a really good deal on shells last year but that meant to meet their minimum order we had to buy a LOT of shells. Shells for everyone!
It’s my last Obama in the Garden, as this is the last of our Obama toys for sale. We had a good run – 4 cases! 6 blog posts! – but I think we’ve seen enough of the Obama toy in our garden. Unless this one doesn’t sell this christmas season and then I may keep it and have him poke his head out in the garden for years to come.
With Austrocylindropuntia subuluta monstrose.
That’s a Kalanchoe in there. Is there enough soil for the plant to survive? Yes! There is enough. And a little bit of charcoal at the bottom too. But be careful not to overwater.
Check out our ad in the Sunday SF Chronicle tomorrow with even more terrariums. I suspect it’s in the garden section, but then you never know with the chronicle.
Tillandsias are the easiest way to go for sure, and the airplants are very reliable too.
That’s a nice one. It has a frog! And not just any frog but a red tree frog, Litoria rubella.
In case you haven’t figured it out, we are the one stop shop for all things terrariums.
