Yum yum….the largest capsicum I’ve grown so far has been harvested by me….and its golden orange. I’m so proud of its size, considering all the neglect it receives…..after all, I just scattered the seeds into some random pot

I felt really great after visiting BTNS that day when we collected leaves, so I went again last Sunday to explore more of BTNS….including the cave path. I saw no cave but a gate….

Anyway, when I logged on to GCS after that, I read about a post where someone mentioned Tacca integrifolia (Bat lily) could be found on the cave path of BTNS….and I didn’t notice it! Must go back and look for it the next time….

What’s lurking outside my door….

I basically have approximately 20 carnivores outside guarding my house today….feeding on the insects outside. Let’s reveal their faces:

Nepenthes x coccinea
Nepenthes coccinea

Originated from grandmother’s place approximately 5 years ago, identity unknown (thought it was a rafflesiana) until people started talking about it on Green Culture Singapore. Someone even thought it was a rare form of rafflesiana and told me to be careful -_-” In the end it was a coccinea and Weng Ngai told me that it’s not surprising my grandmother bought it as Singapore had it on retail years ago. I guess you seldom see this hybrid nowadays (except for the weedy ventrata). A plant of sentimental value as it was passed on to me by my grandmother, and right now has such long vines all around putting out upper pitchers.

A KNIGHT class guardian 😀

Welcome all gardeners!
