New Year, New Blog New Beginning

January 2, 2013 Leave a comment

My recent announcement to shift my blog to facebook community had received numerous objections from my very loyal readers.

Thanks for following me in years that have past and we all had learnt a lot from one another. A lot have been done over the years in this blog and the wealth of knowledge in this blog had benefited thousands of like minded friends. I regain a lot of motivation from you and your support had encouraged me to restart on writing more articles.

I have decided to start clean and fresh again, with a new blog: http://dreamandgrowit.blogspot.sg/

We shall build this new blog again and hopefully this will grow bigger than this blog!

See you guys there!

In the recent times, I have been on lots of business trips and unable to catch up on gardening. Finally dust had settled and I can afford more time for this 🙂

Looks like blog here may not be the best way for interaction and has been an obstacle for me to conduct and coordinate gardening talks. I am shifting the new posts and events organizing to Facebook.

Let’s start another workshop session (March weekends)

February 11, 2012 Leave a comment

I recently conducted a few talks for a few organizations and had received interest in having more talks and workshops. I was pretty motivated with the strong response from them and decided to organize another gardening talk for everyone.

Many have also given feedback that they are unable to round up 15 people to start a workshop session. So I will hope to fix the date and place of the workshop, and those who are available can apply. You can apply by emailing me @ dreamngrowit@gmail.com

Ideal dates will be on Saturdays afternoons, possible location will be at Hortpark.

Anyway, I will consolidate the applications and update over here!

Now on Facebook!

January 12, 2012 Leave a comment

Recently I added a Talks & Workshops page on Facebook. I had many requests asking to form a gardening talk around 20 members and many can’t gather enough enthusiasts to start. So I hope this page will provide an alternative platform for such coordination. Everyone can express their interests, and also decide the venue for the talks.

I will also add photos and tips every now and then, not a lot of words but bite size chunks that will help in your everyday gardening! See you there!

Idea for pitcher plants!

December 17, 2011 Leave a comment

Many woul think that tropical pitcher plants, Nepenthes, may not be the best candidate to beautify your home. Well, just a bit of gardening skills and being adventurous, they can make good houseplants too!

The previous post I worte was about Borneo Exotics’ Biodome, a plastic container with sponge, provides the necessary growing conditions for them to grow well in different settings and environments. However, they may not be aesthetically pleasant, so they can be removed and potted in glass bowls. With decorative terrarium materials, I have managed to create something close to their natural habitat.

bowl-1

With pumice and pebbles as potting media at the bottom, which will served as the reservoir for the attached wick which came together with the biodome. All I need to do is to set the plant together with the sponge collar and top up with pumice and pebbles, making sure that the wick is able to reach into the pool of reservoir. Viola! its done!.

bowl-2

The glass bowl will act just like the biodome, trapping the much needed humidity and at the same time allowing adequate sunlight to reach the plant. It’s been a week, and looks like the pitcher plant looks happy!
