An interesting medenilla sp. the leaves are stiff and velvety and the undersides are a rich bronze. The flowers are pretty showy too.

It looks like a ficus damaropsis but something tells me it isn't. Shouldn't it be puffier in between the leaf veins?

a Variegated plam - not sure what genera

then a variegated Cycas Revoluta

Another wavriegated plant that I thought was a coconut seedling but it turns out to be a ground orchid.

Quite overwhelming, Gene! These displays are like massive flower arrangements, pure fantasy for gardeners, and so inspiring. Keep posting, I love it!

Those perforated ceramic orbs in post #14 mix well with the succulents, very unusual. I'd like to have a bold tree to decorate with bromeliads and other plants like in post #12. Awesome!

glad you like them Kim. The Neoregelia bromeliads are particularly impressive in the displays.

As for more pictures-- I can't seem to add any more. I tried posting a few more with lots of pictures but it doesn't push through.

Maybe I reached my maximum? Technical glitch it seems.

I need to figure this out.

oh my! What beautiful plants!

The Ficus in #6 is F. dammaropsis. They only get that pleated, puffy, ruffled leaf look when grown in full sun here. If they're grown in shade they remain flat.

dimitris - I suggest you get a mop then. Yup there were a lot of drool worthy plants. I am particularly interested in the Ficus Damaropsis but out it costs too much for now.

Bill Austin - well thatl how I feel too when you put a post of your perfectly grown palms.

Matty - Thanks for that information. I am really tempted to pick up one of those.

ARI - Yup more to come. I don't really maintain a facebook account the way normal people do-- I just use it to keep tabs on some tenants.

Palm crazy - if you like variegated palms theny your mind will be blown in the next few posts.

Paulgila - Yeah I was having trouble posting for a while and things were generally slow for about an hour.

Aussiearoids - Thanks for that ID.

Patricia CR - oh well you better sit down for the next few posts.
