Oh, I find it quite satisfying!

It's certainly wild out today! Intense downpours here!

It's not satisfying when it goes on your fingers, yuck!

Very wild here today too.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

I suppose it is a bit satisfying! But gross at the same time.

Send some of your rain this way please, Lillie. It's windy and sunny here with no rain in sight.

Anyone doing anything exciting this weekend?

Morning guys
It was freezing last night!
Why are hospitals always either freezing or boiling??



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

Thank you ^.^

I have a Tillandsia cyanea 'Anita Pink' Bromeliad (totally googled that) and the bit that's ment to be pink is going green. The leaves are looking unhappy too. Bertie did bite the pink bit so it has a lovely impression of his top teeth on one side,but it flowered after this so I dont think it's that. How do I get it to be a happy plant?

Very impressed that you gave the full plant name there. =P

So... I also don't think Bertie did any real damage to it. The pink bit won't stay pink forever. Once it's flowered from that pink bract, that whole flowering stalk will die and usually the parent plant will die too, but what it should do is produce loads of new "pups" around the outside that when they're big enough will then form a big clump and also flower. That could explain why the leaves are looking a bit rough.

Or it could be light levels/watering issues.

Oh I see. How rude. It didnt tell me it would die and not be pink. That's the reason I bought it!

Yeah, they never tell you these things! They're quite often bought as like a one off splash of colour for a bit and then thrown away, kinda like how most people treat orchids. But that doesn't mean it has to be binned, it's always worth seeing what will happen. Bromeliads aren't always the most easy, I've grown a few and never got them to reflower. =(

There are others that aren't green! I have a few black/purple leaved ones.

One is a ZZ Plant - Zamioculcus zamiifolia 'Raven' - which takes very little care at all... and there are also purple leaved Tradescantia or Senecio that are nice. My favourite is my spider plant, not the usual variegated skinny leaved type. This one is Chlorophytum orchidastrum 'Green Orange' which looks like a Hosta but with bright orange stalks on the leaves. =)

I'm ok but slept really bad. My dad likes gardening, he's forever telling me the names of plants and I just forget.
