Polaskia Chichipe Cactus
This is a cactus which came with me from London to Spain and it flourished! In the photo taken in 2009 the difference between the old and the new self is very visible. The colour changed and also the width increased.
With less than ideal conditions from 2011 (moved from Spain to Northen Italy) the tip became thinner.

The Tillandsia Bulbosa is also one of the easiest air plants to care for. It does not require any soakings, only mistings 2-3 times a week, more often in hot and dry conditions like that of in the desert. In the summer months, when it is a bit warmer, the Bulbosa can grow quite rapidly.
It also does extremely well in low light conditions as well as that of bright diffused or indirect light
The Tillandsia Bulbosa is native to Guatemala, Belize and Central America.
Perfectly paired with Himmeli: The DimonThed and The Heart, and with all of the Wall Sconces.
Smooth, blue-green leaves with yellow-edged, red margins form a single, symmetrical rosette. Each leaf tip bears a short red spine. A comely choice for sunny, low water gardens in warm coastal or humid Mediterranean-like climates. Handsome in dry desert gardens as well, provided some shade and supplemental water. Evergreen.
- Cannas do best with a good supply of water, so water the plants during the summer if the rainfall is less than 1 inch per week. …
- Keep a thin layer of mulch around cannas to help retain moisture as well.
- Stake tall varieties if needed.
- As flowers fade, deadhead to promote continued flowering.
Sharp-tipped leaves are the origin for the “prickly” name for this plant, and it definitely fits. Up to 2″ in length, these pointy leaves require the use of gloves to prune, but the flower stalks more than make up for the trouble.
Those flowers are actually clusters of 7-36 small flowers with extremely long stamens. The stamens are bright scarlet in color with yellowish-green tips, giving them a distinctly dual-colored look.
Visually stunning to look at, this plant can grow from five to thirty feet in height.
Asparagus setaceus, commonly known as common asparagus fern, lace fern, climbing asparagus, or ferny asparagus, is a climbing plant in the genus Asparagus. Despite its common name, the plant is not a true fern, but has leaves that resemble one
The fern may dry out to the point it appears dead; however, outdoor springtime temperatures generally revive them. Keep the plant well watered in all situations and repot every few years. Care ofasparagus ferns indoors involves misting the arching stems to provide humidity to the plant.
Rodents may not be your thing but the easy-to-grow rat tail cactus could be. Aporocactus rat tail cactus is an epiphytic plant, which means it grows naturally in low soil cracks such as tree crotches and rocky crevasses. The plants are native to Mexico which means for the most part growing rat tail cactus is an indoor activity. Gardeners only in the warmer zones can grow them outdoors, but rat tail cactus houseplants thrive in the interior landscape. Rat tail cactus care is uncomplicated and the plants add interest and texture to hanging baskets or succulent containers.

- Temperature: Average 12° C. They are cold intolerant and might die if exposed to freezing temperatures. During the summer it is best to keep the plants outside where the temperature can rise to over 30 C with no harm to the plant. Need full sun avoiding only the harshest summer sun, if kept too dark they may become overly lush and greener and could be prone to rotting due to over watering.
- Soil: Furnish good drainage and use an open and free draining mineral compost that allows therefore roots to breath.
- Water: In winter: keep almost completely dry. If the soil is allowed to be dry for too long root loss could follow but equally the same result would occur if the plants are both wet and cold. From March onwards the plant will begin to grow and watering should be increased gradually until late May when the plant should be in full growth. In summer: water regularly as long as the plant pot is allowed to drain. During hot weather you may need to water the plants more frequently so long as the plant is actively growing. From late September watering should be reduced to force the plant to go into a state of semi dormancy, by October you should be back into the winter watering regime.
