I am really inspired and in awed by all the beautiful flowers and vegetables all of you gardening enthusiasts have grown. Therefore, I decided to start my own tiny garden in the corridor. Hope to learn more skills/tips from fellow forum mates.

Started on Oct 2014.

Curry leaves, Lemon Grass and Seven Star Needle

I have cut the leaves of the lemon grass at the same time. May I know why is there a particular leaf growing at such a fast speed? :lol:/>/>/>

Wow, nice start.
I suggest that you change the soil in your pots with a better quality soil that drains better.

The volcanic potting mix from giant, it is cheap and good or you can buy Horti soil which is good too.
Good soil will really help your plants grow much better.

Seven star needle. What are the methods of consumption for this herb? I boil 7 leaves and drink the water.http://i1288.photobucket.com/albums/b498/t1nysheep/Mobile%20Uploads/20141205_120214_zpsul8vsvpa.jpg

Nice. Notice your ladyfinger has no leaves, hard to supply energy to a fruit. Maybe you can consider taking out the fruit, and let the plant grow leaves first. Then your subsequent crop will be have flowers and more fruits.

Those white stuff on your ladyfinger, could be mealy bugs.

sthh I think you are correct,I think it could be Neem or Eco oil to the rescue to kill those pests that are killing your plant.

The infestation doesn't look too bad. Maybe using the fingers to squash them would be enough for the moment.

http://i1288.photobucket.com/albums/b498/t1nysheep/Mobile%20Uploads/20141230_181843_zpskjfqyfvv.jpg

Is it normal for the leaves to have this white patch? :huh:/>

Mini orchid and kalanchoe. Read that they are difficult plants to keep. Hopefully they can maintain their bloom till CNY.

Your balcony must be really sunny. I can't grow most of those plants that you are growing, because my area is just not sunny enough.

The direct sunlight hits only in the noon for about an hour. Quite surprise that they could even bud. I wasn't expecting any as they are so small. :lol:/> Your hydroponics look amazing!! :wub:/> :wub:/>

Happy giant sunflower that I've planted from seed in my work place's rooftop garden has grown to about 2 metres. Direct sunlight at the rooftop makes the sunflower really happy as compared to my corridor.
