I bought this Hoya Kerrii (aka Sweetheart Plant) a few months ago in the summer. Although I know that Hoya Kerrii is a slow-growing plant like most other succulents, I observe it closely every once a while, and hope that I will find something new, something different and exciting on this Sweetheart Hoya.
And last month, I finally got to see some “action” - my Hoya Kerrii has grown another heart-shaped leaf! Unlike the other leaves of my Hoya Kerrii, this one is all in green. Now I wonder if the edge of the leaf will somehow turn yellow as the leaf grows bigger. Continue reading My Hoya Kerrii Has Grown Another Heart
Don’t these little shots of succulents look cute? We can either put a few of them together on a tabletop or scatter them around in the house, either way, will add a slice of nature and some refreshing colors to our homes and offices.

Cactus makes very good tabletop gardens. There are many species of cacti, some with outrageous colors, some with small yet flashy flowers, and some with weird shapes and sizes. We can use cactus to make a very big tabletop garden crammed with various types of cacti, or we can use some baby cacti to make a petit tabletop garden as small as a coffee cup.
Ideas of cactus garden are limitless. Just be creative and give it a try. I guarantee that you will find a lot of fun in making tabletop gardens with cactus too!

A few weeks ago, my father knocked down the two cacti in my tabletop garden – My Star when he was rushing to the windows to save the carpet and furniture from getting wet by a sudden rain.
Actually I should have anticipated this… After playing and observing this tabletop garden for a while, I have found its design deficiency – weak support. The red and yellow cacti were very tall, yet, lack of strong support. There were neither plants nor rocks to provide the cacti with enough support.

I bought these two Echeverias in December last year for my tabletop garden – Merry Christmas. In these three months, the stems of these Echeverias have kept stretching longer and longer, and now, they are like a Yao Ming of their genus.
