Yup it bamboo, my area is two unit each floor...also the highest so i guess it make it more space...

I took this during the afternoon sun, so it more bright...i get morning and noon sun thru out days...it like morning in the left and noon sun on the right where the bamboo is.

For my herb i leave it at the morning sun area.

Is that artificial light from the back? No, just my flash light when i took hahaha...

Another pic of the area whre some of my herb ishttp://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m316/sgboy83/CIMG0824.jpg

Hi Richard,

Thanks for sharing. You must join the Community in Bloom Awards - you will probably win!! :lol:/>

I am interested to know how you grow your bamboo. From what I understand, this plant is a full sun plant.

How did you manage to keep such a healthy specimen? Mind to share?

Wilson :)/>

Wah! Very nice leh. I thought that is the lift of a hotel lobby. :D/>

It is not easy to grow foliage plants like Monstera and Scindapsus as they prefer bright shade, a feat that is difficult to accomplished indoor. Tell us your secret leh. :D/> :P/> :)/>

Yeah yeah...you will win the CIB. You MUST join! :P/> I can help you with the logistics if you are keen. :lol:/>

Hi there, yup i had join the CIB...didnt give too much hope for it..haha guess there better one out there...

About my bamboo, this is the thailand bamboo common species (Bambusa Siamensis) that suit singapore weather, cheap also...good for beginner.

My bamboo i water 3 times a days, they are smart, they tend to grow toward where the sun light is...I tok to plant haha that why they grow healthy.

Treat them like treasure....nurse them if they fall sick, feed them with water if they are dry, soil losing when they feel tight, add new neighbour of plant if they feel lonely, i always on my music...Kitaro whenever i tend to trim them...

Hi Sweethalo,

You can always advice your dad try plant that dont need too much of sunlight, like big feature plant,

Bird nest fern
Philodendron ssp.
Monstera Deliciosa.
Different Fern spp.

And also can play around with hardscape material, like water feature, pebbles, wood deck (thoes portable one)

Anyway end of the day, it your lovely garden...dun stress out by what to do or what to put...play around with it.

Wow Richard, your plants are nice. Your building and mine are exactly of the same pattern, just that mine is not renovated yet. :D/> Btw do you live in Jurong West? Before the renovation, how do you keep the plants ah, do they bloom flowers? Mine is the last corridor, so will be brighter than the rest. How about yours?

Hi mansiz, thanks...my just upgrade about 1 year ago, i dun stay jurong..i stay hougang, before upgrade was bright...after that they had enclose some area making it not sunny and bright..

Some of my plants near the lights area will bloom, others than that..i kept alot of hardy and shady plants..by playing around diff texture of leaf and shape.

[b] I especially like your healthy looking Plectranthus plant Beautiful mauve contrast with the greenery Very reminiscent of Streptocarpus Plectranthus is it? Congrats! Successful House- ( Can we called it Houseplant?!) or Potplant indeed
