|[ White Guinea Yam (Dioscorea cayenensis subsp. rotundata) | Posted on July 23, 2016 ]
I grew up eating this edible tuber. It is a type of yam. This is my first time growing it where I live (South Florida), and it's been an interesting experiment. I usually boil it with a little salt. It is healthy and delicious.

Nice soft fragrance, likes indirect light.
|[ Tropical Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Bienvenue') | Posted on February 2, 2013 ]
Great plant to add a pop of color to the backyard. Loves the South Florida sun.
|[ Banana (Musa acuminata) | Posted on August 12, 2012 ]
Banana plants can be grown in containers. They just need a little extra care.
|[ Orchid (Vanda tricolor) | Posted on July 27, 2012 ]
Vandas like bright light but not intense heat. The name of the variety is: Ascocenda Ratchaburi Beauty.
|[ Venus Fly Trap (Dionaea muscipula) | Posted on July 26, 2012 ]
If provided with the right conditions, Venus Fly traps are pretty easy to keep happy. They like their roots wet, high humidity, full sunlight, and sphagnum moss that doesn't have fertilizer in it. Fertilizers will kill this plant.
|[ Mexican Petunia (Ruellia simplex) | Posted on July 25, 2012 ]
This plant produces plenty of flowers and is pretty much maintenance-free. It can be planted in the ground or in containers. Enjoys full sun.
|[ Dwarf Bougainvillea (Bougainvillea glabra 'Helen Johnson') | Posted on July 24, 2012 ]
I got this on member's day at Flamingo Gardens. It is a dwarf bougainvillea, I believe a Helen Johnson, but I'm not sure. It is pretty much a maintenance-free, sun-loving plant, and it blooms constantly.
|[ Portulaca | Posted on July 23, 2012 ]
Easy to take care of, enjoys full sun.
