Phalaenopsis Semi Water Culture 2 - July 18 2017

Kemarin ini barusan mengurus anggrek Phalaenopsis pemberian teman dan diganti media tanamnya dengan batu scoria. Pada waktu yang bersamaan, saya lihat anggrek Phalaenopsis kami yang berbunga putih yang tadinya tumbuh subur dan selalu berbunga, tiba-tiba daunnya mulai kelihatan layu berkerut, terutama daun bagian bawah. Biasanya kalau ini terjadi problemanya pasti pembusukan akar.

Phalaenopsis - repotted by using scoria July 13-2017

A friend recently gave me a phalaenopsis orchid to look after. After finished flowering she had no idea what to do with it. Actually, phalaenopsis is one of orchid species that I will not grow too many of them. One reason is that they have to be kept indoor here in Melbourne, and we do not have enough suitable space for them. Other reason is that they are very prone to root problems. Recently I tried to grow few phalaenopsis kokedamas, and it seem that they do quite well though the moss balls are easy to get dry.

Mainan kereta dari kulit jeruk gulung

Dua tahun terakhir ini mulai banyak dijual pomelo di daerah Melbourne sini. Harganya juga jauh lebih murah dari sebelumnya. Sekarang sedang mulai musim buah jeruk besar ini. Di Green Grocer Asia (toko buah dan sayuran), buah ini yang kelihatannya hasil panen dari Australia, ditempatkan di kotak kayu besar. Buah jeruk pomelo ini lebih dikenal dan disukai oleh orang Asia.

Garden Early Winter 2017

6 Comments

Cold start of winter. Today was mainly overcast with few sunny breaks. The gardens are still reasonably fresh and colourful thanks to the enough rainfalls. Now  I can hear the coo-cooing sound of the turtle doves while some other garden birds are chattering softly.

Along the footpath: The pear tree is bare but the rest of the plants look fresh. Crassulas  and  the Thryptomene bush are all blooming. Hibiscuses are still flowering though the blossoms are smaller now.

Autumn Colours

Ash Tree - Flaxinus angustifolia Jells Park May 18-2017

The sudden drop of temperature in May brings fog and frost. Slowly the deciduous leaves turn into yellow, orange and auburn red. Warmer weather in the previous months has made the autumn colours come very late. Our pear trees are still green.
