Some Pictures of My Houseplants

October 14th, 2009

It’s been almost a year since my last post. I was busy trying to make some money online, so I neglected this blog. But that’s going to change. While I’m trying to monetize the blog, I thought you might like to see some pictures of my houseplants, most of which were taken recently.

Since I live in the Virgin Islands, most of my houseplants are actually porch plants. And most of them don’t get much sun, but they get plenty of light. Since I live on the North Side of the island, and my porch has a roof, they only get direct sunlight for an hour or so except in the summer of course, when the sun comes from the North ( since I’m in the tropics ).

Red Flower

I got a cutting of this plant from outside my local liquor wholesaler’s office. I haven’t found out its name yet. The flower starts out red, then gradually changes to orange, then yellow.

    Hi – Your unknown red flower is Lantana camara. There are many cultivars with different-colored flowers; I don’t know the particular name for this one.

    Oh, and you might check out Night Blooming Cereus for your large white night-bloomer.

    some great photos here; particuarly like the red one which you’re not sure of the name. I’m new to gardening but really want to expand my knowledge especially with summer just around the corner 🙂
