銷售毛蟲的概略樣子


一年一度國內賣花時間到
有些多的植物會拿到5/1市圖苦展賣
不用訂,只能現場看價格及品相,合意才購買
+1那套賣法,整理起來對老人家來說很傷腦
反正要賣的也不是很多,就隨緣啦
不會印花圖去現場,所以先列可賣的清單
麻煩有需要的花友做好功課再來
現場人多事雜問花色比較麻煩

Cyrtandra sp. in Sabah

Sabah ... not far from home because we have direct flight (TPE - BKI) to go there and it only takes us 3 hours. It's my third times to visit Sabah but in dry season. At 1500 meters above sea level, I unexpectedly encountered this Gesneriad plant but the funny thing is that it was not the plant to stop me at the roadside. The story is that I saw a blooming Burbidgea when we drove by, the orange-yellow flower is hard to ignore, so we stopped to check it out. Not far away from that Burbidgea, I found an interesting plant and it looked like Cyrtandra splendens which is commonly recorded in the lowland of Sarawak. Anyway, I just know it belongs to Gesneriaceae family, genus Cyrtandra. Unfortunately there is no flower for double checking the ID. I found both young and old plants (with tall and woody stem) at the same place, the variegated foliage is beautiful, especially the young plants.

Sinn. Jung's Orange Zest

It is a seedling from the F1 cross "Sinningia reitzii x bullata" and it's a big plant now. Though it is a rigid plant but hard to be propagated by using the cutting. It flowers all the time no matter hot or cold.
