Thumb Plant Status Notes Events
Image Barleria repens - Coral Creeper
Have
Flowers
I just found the name of this plant in a garden group on Facebook. I was informed that it is Barleria repens - Coral Creeper and then I did a search on the internet and found the name and the picture. Mystery is over.
Image Carmona retusa - Fukien Tea
Have
I received this plant from Ruth's Tropical Garden last year. It is very hardy and loves the Dougherty Garden and grows very good. I happen to have had a bonsai pot that I found years ago and placed the plant in the bonsai pot. Here it is and the Fukien tea seems very happy.
Image Chamaedorea Erumpens - Bamboo Palm Tree
Have
I have the Bamboo palm trees in a few locations. One is in the Terra Cotta pot as you see in the above picture and the one that is presently putting out numerous seeds. The other Bamboo palm tree is in the ground and does have a few seeds bracts. Thenm I have two to three young Bamboo palm trees that I thought were Alexander palm trees but soon changed that to Bamboo as new shoots developed at the base and became the clustering palm tree.
Image Coffee Arabica - Arabian Coffee
Have
Another one of my plants from Ruth's Tropical Garden is the Arabian Coffee plant that I'll plant this week in the Dougherty Garden since it will only grow to six feet with coffee beans. We'll see what we have next year.
Image Dracaeana Marginata - Red-Edged Dracaeana
Have
This Dracaeana plant was infested with carpenter ants and I had to clean out the base of the plant and much of the trunk covering was removed. This was the only section above that was savable but within a few days, new growth appeared on this branch as you can see in the above picture.
Image Epiphyllum - Climbing Orchid
Have
I have this Climbing Orchid in the Dougherty Garden for a few years now I'm waiting for the bloom this year. The above picture was taken last year. I set out a few to see the plants multiply over this year and had one small bus fall off but found that it is still growing after I placed it ina pot with some peat moss and seems to do doing fine at the moment.
Image Eurphorbia milii - Crown of Thorns
Have
Flowers
At one point in time, I had over 15 different varieties of the Eurphorbia plant. Most of the varieties that I have all have the thorns on the base of the trunk. Only one variety has a trunk with no sthorns.
Image Hippeastrum - Amaryllis
Have
Sorry about the clarity of the picture, I'll add another one over the weekend but I wanted to share these seedlings because I think that they are Amaryllis seedlings. They were from little black seed that I had put in a pot like this and the birds took disturbed them over the past two months. I actually threw out a few of these thinking that they were weeds. I couldn't find any pictures of the seeds as they germinated but believe that these may be seedlings. I'll let them grow a bit more and add another picture soon.

As to the description, the name, all I could find was the name Hippeasatrum with no definitive posting to tell me that this was the true scientific name for the Amaryllis.
Image Kentiopis olivformis - Miraguama Palm Tree
Have
Palm Trees
Just repotted this palm tree in a larger pot and trying to keep it alive through the summer. Slow growing when young.
Image Lichen in South Florida
Have
Lichen is literally on every tree growing in South Florida. If you could use these designs from lichen, you would have a unique piece of art. Everyone is different.
Image Livistonia chinensis - Chinese Fan Palm Tree
Have
This Chinese fan palm tree is a few years old and as you can see in the picture is the reason it is call a fan palm. I had one growing in the Dougherty Garden but the canopy of a large tree shut out the sun and the palm died. This is one of the palms that can be used as a palm in a patio pot in a sunny location but one has to realize that it needs to be put in the ground as it ages and grows larger.
Image Madagascar Tree Seedling
Have
Sell as plant
Flowers
This is the first year that I received seeds from this Madagascar Tree. The blooms are white and pink flowers and appear on the top of the branches.
Image Phoenix roebelenii - Pygmy Date Palm Tree Seedlings
Have
Sell as plant
Palm Trees
These are Pygmy Date palm tree seedings that are one year old. If anyone is interested in buying some, please let me know.
Image Pothos - New variety
Have
I received this Poths plant as a new species of the Pothos plant and still trying to get a few more sections to grow.
Image Sansevieria trifasciata - Snake (Rope) plant
Have
I have three variation of the Sanservieria plant. This one is the Rope Sanservieria plant and grows long, circular stems with a pointy tip. Be careful when working with this plant. I have them in a shady area and the plants seems to be very happy.
Image Small Flowers from Queen Palm Tree Added to Soil Mixture
Have
Everytime a Queen palm tree puts out a seed bract, the little white flowers fall to the ground after blooming, like in the above picture. I sweep them up in a dust pan and add them gradually to my soil mixture. I don't have an active compost heap in my garden due to space but use small amounts of garden watse in five gallon plastic pots and sift the waste into my plot of garden soil.
Image Soil Collection - Use Old Plant Trays
Have
I use old plastic plant trays for sifting the top layer of soil in my garden. I scoop about an inch or less and capture soil, mulch, weeds, etc. and shake the trays releasing the soil into pots below. I hand pick the weeds from the tray to throw away and the remaining mulch is spread over the area I was de weeding. The soil released from the tray into the pots is upgraded with soil additives for a nt soil requirements in the garden.
Image Teddy Bear Palm Tree
Have
Palm Trees
My little Teddy Bear palm tree that adds another palm tree seedling to my collection. I like it for the fuzzy feel to the leaf stem, just like a Teddy Bear.
Image Yucca aloifolia - Spanish Bayonet
Have
Here is the plant without the white flowers at the top. These leaf stems grow rather fast and as they age and brown out and fall to the trunk of the tree. You have to pull them off if you want to keep the plant looking nice and green. Use a shirt to protect your arms from the ends of the leafs which are very sharp.
very old plant a tree now Croton (Codiaeum variegatum 'Mother and Daughter')
Have
