Yellow Climbing Rose

I just realised that the CG has a pot of yellow climbing rose when I discovered it. I assumed that the climbing rose given to the CG were all Cecile Brunner's. It's a nice surprise and I will be watching this together with the baby pink ones. Later may decide which to one is to be planted into the ground and then let it grow up a trellis.

Bicolored Rose

This rose has a pretty dual coloration of yellow and pink. It's a nice surprise and I like it. It's a pity that I don't get many blooms from the plant. It's always a single bloom at a time ....haiz!

Hibiscus Orange 2

I believe this cutting was given to me by a friend and this is the first bloom of the orange hibiscus. It's different from the other orange hibiscus in the CG. Petals are a lot rounder and thicker and the bloom is sort of held nearer the stem, not the free hanging type. Looking forward to more blooms but it's rather a slow growing plant.

New Trellis

The hoyas, nepenthes had spent months hanging on the green fence and finally a new metallic trellis was constructed for them. No more hanging on the fence!
One of our regular CGer exclaimed her first impression of the 'new' trellis .... "it's just like the pasar malam tent where they sell plants" .... and it's quite true .... LOL The CG had sought the help of our regular RC tentage guy to help build the trellis and also several ones in the CG and cos' we were lacking funds and we will be paying him in installments. I must say it's better than nothing and hanging on the fence.

Below is another trellis built at the Episcia Corner. The bamboo trellis had broken and the episcia pots I hanged between the Jambu and Chempedak trees will soon be transferred to this area. The area is now bigger ... thanks to having a bigger metallic trellis constructed and I continue to use the green netting for allowing a higher light intensity through. Over here I place all the hibiscus cuttings to grow too. It's also sort of a nursery area for new cuttings to root and grow.
