Urban Jungle Bloggers #36

The thing I like most with the Urban Jungle Bloggers topics is that they challenge me to try something new. Like with the previous New Beginnings topic where I grew even more cuttings in laboratorium glassware. And today's Tropicool topic is no exception!

Tropicool to me means wavy palmtrees, cocktails, tropical fruits like pineapple and watermelon, high humidity and sunshine. And maybe even bright pink inflatable flamingos 😉 I don't own anything flamingo, but I do have a comfy hammock chair, a 19th birthday gift from Robert, that I rarely used because somehow I never found the right tree. It's the perfect chair for today's tropicool nook!

From all the 27 rooms in our home, this is probably one of the places where I never "did something": it's the small area near our pretty staircase. I wish I could plant some leafy Philodendrons in the planter on top of the wall permanently, but they're toxic to cats… Love their aerial roots!

Unfortunately no one can chill in the hanging chair, because my "very stylish" construction is too fragile for anything heavier than a yellow throw:

I love this combination of two different Philodendrons in one Voltasol pot! The larger Philodendron is a gift from the thriftshop guy and the smaller one is a cutting I brought from Italy. It looks so cosy:

Did you know you can easily grow a plant from the top of a pineapple? Chop off the top and eat the fruit. Then remove the lower leaves from the top. The first time I did this I thought there were worms in between the leaves! But these are the beginnings of the roots of the new plant!

  1. Wat een heerlijk hoekje zeg! Leuk hoe je het gele thema heb doorgevoerd tot de terracotta potjes :) Jammer dat chillen in de hangstoel er niet in zit, maar ook zo is het al een plaatje om naar te kijken en dat is ook al genieten!
