Shrubs I started from cuttings from other areas of the garden were planted in my side yard by the street, voted in due to their beautiful foliage and ability to fill in blank spaces between two Tabubia street trees. Within several years, their original promises were indeed fulfilled and they looked marvelous. However the maintenance to keep them properly pruned became overwhelming. They were up for reelection and they were voted out of office. The short video below is how they were forced out.
Beautiful new plants were needed to fill in all the empty spaces of the plants removed. Voted in were bromeliads. I planted a single bromeliad in a pot and itmultiplied and needed to be divided anyway. They would unify the area and add a bit of formality to the jungle. Another plant got voted in, a wonderful phildondron native to Brazil. This plant is wonderful and I also use it for hydroponics class in nursing homes. This is how it was done.
Whatever you feel about the election and who wins and who loses, mother nature takes care of us all and we need to all get along in the garden of Eden. Thank you for visiting my blog and see you again soon.
