To go on lets sum the plants which are being planned in this month.Just got some seeds from Channa Din Sons Lahore and got some yesterday from Awan Seeds,Rawalpindi.

Seeding time is almost over but still you can plan for the following.
Celosia
Cosmos
Zinnia
Portulaca
Gillardia
Sunflower
Vinca

You r welcome too bro, at the moment all veges are on flower and already had first crop of lady finger. Lots of Chinese lemon (3x trees) are geting ready, wd shortly be able to upload pics of grapes. Getting advantage of lots of lemon I have a program to start mixing lemon juice in water for birds.

04-28-2013, 10:20 PM
sonaray here's a tip for your lemon tree.
Add banana peels to your tree.The plant needs potassium and they are rich in it.You can also use this for your roses to bloom well.Also make sure the plant is not dehydrated so that it could produce juicy lemons.

Thanx for the tip, i ll do. Using urea and supplements to all plants on fortnightly basis results are good.

Only could guide you about the money plant.
Take a stem and keep it in water.After somedays its roots will develop then you can plant in a soil container.About the large leaves,Place a pole with a cloth tied on it like u see in nurseries.As the plant climbs,tie it on this pole.One the stem develops roots or clinges,the leaves will become larger.

Beautiful orchids you have :)

kkk
04-29-2013, 12:30 PM
there is no such rose as black or blue per se.black is darkest maroon and blue is more of a lilac.in roses there is a black splashed yellow variety, goes by the name of black tiger or abracadabra.sentimental and michael angelo are simlar splaashed but diff colours.@ dashing,try applying root hormones,not sure of your climatic conditions but i assume its late for cuttings now.in monsoon you can try another method that i use with my lychees..will give you the method later if interested.

I'm a great admirer of plants, and wish I could know as much about plants as you people do. When I got my house about 4 years ago, this was the case with the small lawn on the first floor

http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x422/feika1/Home/DSC00834_zps8a02c6d1.jpg (http://s1181.photobucket.com/user/feika1/media/Home/DSC00834_zps8a02c6d1.jpg.html)

but after a little care this turned out like this

http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x422/feika1/Home/DSC02687_zpsa8b87797.jpg (http://s1181.photobucket.com/user/feika1/media/Home/DSC02687_zpsa8b87797.jpg.html)

for those who want to have bigger leaves on their money plants, I have observed that the thicker the support you give to the plant, the bigger its leaves becomes. For example I've got a plant in a bottle, its leaves are too small compared to another one which has got a 2 inch thick PVC pole with coconut straw strapped all around it, however, the leaves of that one too are way too small compared to another plant that I've got with a 6 inch PVC pole. But the biggest leaves of my money plant are the ones which have got the rockery as the support. Some of them are visible of the left of the photo above, but a full veiw is below

It's better to get ready made bonsai from nursery, to start with your own plants is really a time taking process.

And feika says he knows nothing about plants !! Great transformation and well kept garden.Yes you are right about the bigger leaves of money plant theory.As much the stem gets support,its leaves gets bigger. kkk im interested to know about the propagation method :) From where do you get root hormones?I tried to find but couldnt.

feika
04-29-2013, 05:43 PM
jawadkhan I've got it already in place by the previous owners, what they did was to treat the floor with chemicals mixed in the cement. It's been over a decade that this lawn is there, and we've got no issues with the seepage in the ceiling beneath.

kkk thank you very much for the tip, will keep that in mind next time I have Dahlias. These pictures are 2 years old when I got lots of them. And I've got no idea about Bonsai. Here are a few more Dahlias

These are a couple of roses, I had got one that Khalid sb has mentioned--dark maroon with yellow shades, the nursery wala called it Tiger rose.

feika
04-29-2013, 06:42 PM
jawad sb, these are easily available locally, at least in Karachi, ask for Al Zohra or simply zohra and chances are you will find one. I've got Red and Pink, white survived in a small pot for about 1.5 years but when I shifted it to a bigger place unfortunately it died. White and Yellow are in my list of must haves, as soon as I get some space available for them, I'll get them in sha Allah.

airofpk air plants are available in Pakistan and are easily kept in Karachi.They dont need soil and could be hanged anywhere.Moist weather is required for them. Sohail Khan you can share your sketches with us but you can start a different thread for it.
