There is a Oncidium hybrid among the Aechmea mounted on the wood, another one hanging in a little basket, a reedstem Epidendrum in front of the wood and a huge Cymbidium beneath the banana.

It would have been a challenge to just use plants from one ecoregion, but as the Musa was first, this is not doable without a wealth at hand ... So now, there is a representant of every continent and of several tropical and subtropical environments.

There is a Bv. Little Stars, too, not on the pic, and soon I'll find a way to place a Eulophia guineensis.

Fun to watch and a good place for morning cup of coffee. As the small trunk to the left is a local Dendropoterium menendezii, just covered with flowers, high up, the whole corner is humming with bees. Is like forest bathing without forest!

PS: My bad, sorry, should have been better placed within 'outdoor gardening' ...

Thanks!

The bottle you see is a 'little greenhouse for cuttings'! I usually give them water bottles a second live. Actually it is filled with Acalypha-cuttings.

There is a water dish for birds.

Two spikes.
We bought this plant without flowers. It is a strong - two repottings since March 21 - but very slow grower. I'd prefer a white or green, but it is more likely to be a rose or yellowish one. Imagine a big white one at this shady place beneath the banana, what a display that would be!

The 'shrimp' as you call it is a Pachystachys lutea. Never had one at this place before. Should be as easy as Justicia carnea, a pink 'shrimp'. It will eventually get too big, so if it grows well, I'll move it more to the back.
