Sharing photos of the plants I'm currently growing http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/flowers.gifWas initially into flowers only, but thanks to poisoning from two friends, I'm growing carnivorous plants too!

Sunflower plantlets.
http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/E3C35AA3-C165-46C4-AB99-091A5110763B_zpsivqibcmy.jpg

One of the plantlets has yellowish leaves. The others don't seem to have this problem. Also, it's seed leaves died off really early, whereas the rest are still keeping their seed leaves.Egg shells newly added this morning.

2nd Lavender plant from WF and my carnivorous planter box.

Venus Fly Traps. Not sure what mine is. Typical form? Itchy hands me repotted it from the pot I bought it in. Thankfully, it recovered pretty fast and is doing well now.

Also very itchy hand repotted one of the Drosera intermedia I got from Wisteria. It's back to being dewy today and caught a fly on it's own http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/wub.gif
http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/6EB8822A-3F40-4F40-B4A5-66095E59A9B6_zpsy6ir2j8n.jpg

And added a new addition to the family of CPs today- Nepenthes Rafflesiana. Bought $5 from Sandy's plot

I'm very new to this hobby but got poisoned more and more. Trying very hard not to get new plants. http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/wacko.gifBabying my seeds and current plantlets shall (hopefully) be enough for me now.
Got some seeds germinating too, in another thread here.

Hi! I bought it from Talos' plot. It's near chengtai nursery! He has a lot of pitcher plants there. It's opposite the pick-a-plant plot

Update 11 Oct 2014:

Added Mulberry cuttings, D. Adelae and D. Tokaiensis! http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/flowers.gif

Update on my corridor garden 18/10/2014:

One of the sunflower seems to be growing either a flower bud or a whole bunch of leaves. I'm not sure..

http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/FCCC6258-6468-48B7-8824-501B62DEFBC3_zpswonvtgds.jpg


Baby's breath seeds germinated and have been growing:

http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/5636B85A-AEFE-4A22-B834-E272BF603101_zpsn3epv4af.jpg


And then there are two seedlings that germinated that I have no idea what they are. Seedling on left found growing in lavender pot, not sown by me. Decided to adopt and see what it grows into. Seedling on right is either an Aster or Shasta Daisy seedling. We shall see http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/happy.gif

http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/1A66BF26-B700-40C5-A9AF-78ECFF30BCE8_zpscoym3ywv.jpg


Current sole surviving lavender cutting (rooted!!!)

http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/C2630BC5-8157-41E9-B92B-7BC770D0E796_zpsgq9dqrld.jpg


I recently just re-potted it into florabella soil, hopefully it does well in it better than the previous greenback + burnt earth mix.

Mulberry cutting from Wisteria also doing well. Growth is slow though. It was growing two baby berries but I cut them off.

http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/D7593D66-B4E2-4593-9D6D-2E50509C78C8_zpstuog8hdh.jpg


First of my plants to be flowering soon: Drosera Intermedia!
I decided to leave the flower stalk to grow because I want to see the flowers http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/flowers.gif

http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/56A302CA-0782-46CE-91CB-3C148F79692F_zpsqrblatf4.jpg


And that's all for now. Here's how my corridor looks like currently:

Hopefully in a few months time, I will see more greenery and maybe a few blooms http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/wub.gif

Updating on my corridor garden, since there's been quite a lot of progress! Starting from the seedlings:

2 x Baby's Breath plantlets is growing steadily!
I notice that the leaves has a tendency to close up or curl downwards sometimes. Might be due to water intake?

(last column)
http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/AC0B2DF5-B0A6-4874-BE6B-6653D3970915_zpsxjb7ptdg.jpg?t=1415333721

The shasta daisy (second row, middle cup) is growing really really slowly. It's growing the second set of leaves now!

Lavender seeds have germinated and are growing well for now! I feed them with diluted seaweed everyday as per LavenderGarden's suggestions (:
I have 8 seedlings now. (first column both cups + second column first cup) They're all a mix of Lavender munstead and Lavender Angustifolia as I didn't really separate them out, but we should be able to tell the difference once their true leaves emerge!

Lavender cutting from (dead) mother plant bought from WF is growing well too.
I dropped the pot a few times and displaced the soil (probably disturbed the root system too..) but it's still growing strong.

http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/on-paperairplanes/Watch%20stuff%20grow/96E61590-32AA-41CC-A76F-B73AEDB39639_zpsfxot2mbx.jpg?t=1415333042

Edamame/Soybean~ From seedling to plant. It's shooting up really fast? I think I'll need to stake it soon for support.
No pictures for now, but the plant has grown to about 30cm tall!

Mulberry progress:

My nepenthes Rafflesiana is pitchering (:

Carnivorous planter box is doing well too!
Drosera Intermedia in flowering stage:

VFT is growing strong and caught a wasp?? I have no idea what the insect is.

Highlight of the update saved last! My sunflower bloomed today!!!
Progress:

It's my first sunflower, I'm really happy to see it flowering well!
I placed a slow release pellet fertiliser from Horti (supposedly high in nitrogen content) and also water it twice a day with diluted seaweed.
Looking forward to harvesting any seeds it produces for my hamster.

Have a great weekend!

Esther

Your corridor seem to be very long and ample space for you to plant, really envy you.

The sunflower is gorgeous.

Seem like a cycle for you, hamster's seeds produce more seeds for it and you get to enjoy the flower, win win situation.

Long corridor has extinct, rem to enjoy it.

The sunflower is actually quite small, about 9-10cm diameter! But it's still pretty, so I'm happy. http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif Hahaha. Yes I'm excited about the lavender! Growth is quite slow, but at least the plant is growing strongly http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/wub.gif
