Okay everybody, try not to die even though the gardener didn't organize you very well by water needs as he promised he would this year.
Lesson learned: Alocasia × amazonica (not pictured) really doesn't enjoy temperatures lower than 60 degrees. Really. It might have given up the ghost but it was small and purchased as an an experimental plant. (Because, clearly, there simply aren't enough plants crammed in here already.)
The big leaves at top right are from a salvia that came from Danger at a plant swap. Just noticed in looking at this picture that it's beginning to bloom. I thought I smelled something very pleasant in that vicinity when I was out there. Can't believe I missed the bloom spike.
Cannas 'Stutgart' and intrigue' spending the winter inside. rhipsalis and spanish moss hang from the branches of the big brugmansia.
Agaves, Aloes, a Furcraea in front, three (need to reduce it to one) jasminum polyanthum in the very back all budded and ready to permeate the January greenhouse with divine fragrance.
Finally got around to planting the paperwhite and "Angels in the Water" narcissus.
This huge (requires two hands to hold it) amaryllis bulb was purchased at Sky Nursery to be sent to my sister in Alaska. It sat on the kitchen counter too long and started growing. Worrying that the bloom stalks might snap off in the mail, I planted it. Sorry. (Who said there were no benefits of procrastinating?)
here for better pictures.
