Ornamental Onion Exotic Blooms Onion Plant Flowering

Image
The onion plant looks similar to any other plant grown from bulb. Green elongated leaves like lilly plants or rajnigandha plants. I had never imagined the onion being so pungent and smelly would give out such beautiful blooms. A visit to a friends place gave me this new discovery and I am sure to plant one this summers.The flower is very beautiful and big which has tiny buds that burst open giving the shape of a round furry white ball to the onion flower. Onion plant can be grown by planting our very own humble spring onion bulb that we eat. 
We also see ornamental onion floweringplants in nurseries, they have vibrant purple furry balls of flowers. So I have seen white furry balls and purple ones, onion blooms are so beautiful! Care as any other bulb of flowering plant, which is very easy , and that is why I love to plant bulbs, you invest once and you keep getting the flowers ever and that too with bonus of new baby bulbs growing fast!

OMG How I Killed a Rhizome! Desert Rose Thailand Plant of Prosperity Adenium Obesum Tips for flowering Desert rose

Image
The Adenium plant , Prosperity plant of Thailand, Adenium Obesum, is for life long and grows for many many years and this is one of the important reasons it has been called the good luck plant or the plant of prosperity, was all I thought! The plant has its life, if not handled(watered)  properly or maybe also climatic conditions and seasons , environment are to blame...we lost our precious one , many years old...so yes, it does die...but we have its baby happily growing. Collecting seeds is thus really important to keep the clan going ahead. I killed a rhizome! strange, they never die and are the most forgiving plants, yet with age and improper draining there was root rot which I did not notice soon, and then it was too late...yet I also realized the plant had lived its life and wanted to give up, because those who want to live, some of my plants have survived the most harshest and most dangerous conditions and  pests and are still with me! flowering!
