Echeveria pulidonis ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

This is one of the plants I bought from a local nursery without knowing its botanical name nor its specific needs. It turned out to be an Echeveria pulidonis. Echeverias are a large group of more than 150 species of small flowering succulents, originally from Central America, characterised by rosettes of leaves and clusters of rosettes. The variety name comes from a common male name in Spanish, … Continue reading Echeveria pulidonis ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

Crassula ovata ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Un paio di anni fa avevo comprato questa mia prima pianta grassa da un vivaio di cittร  senza nemmeno sapere quale ne fosse il nome scientifico o le esigenze di coltivazione. Sono stato fortunato nello scoprire che piante di questo genere riescono a sopravvivere nelle condizioni di maggiore incuria, essendo piante originarie dei deserti dell’Africa meridionale. Le mie assenze prolungate da casa avevano significato che … Continue reading Crassula ovata ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Haworthia limifolia ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต

I’ve had this little plan for almost a year and i guess it has been used to living in my urban flat since I bought it last summer. It must be quite a different environment from the natural habitat in Southern Africa where this originates. My recent passion for succulents is bringing me to develop a little collection of plants, that hopefully will survive my … Continue reading Haworthia limifolia ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต

Haworthia marumiana ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Qualche tempo fa ho comprato delle piccole piante grasse e dei cactus per una composizione per il mio davanzale. Ormai queste piccole piante sono cresciute molto, nonostante la mia mancanza di cure. In realtร  sembrano prosperare nonostante la mia mancanza di attenzione e di annaffiature. Una pianta in particolare, la Haworthia marumiana, sta estendendo il suo territorio ben oltre il luogo in cui era originariamente … Continue reading Haworthia marumiana ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

My favourite parks ๐ŸŒณโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒณ

St James’s Park in central London is one of the best curated and interesting urban green areas, against the royal backdrop of Buckingham Palace and the scenic perspective of The Mall. Originally marshland in between royal residences, it was drained and landscaped to host exotic animals and plants by orders of James I. Green Park is the smallest of the Royal Parks in London, with … Continue reading My favourite parks ๐ŸŒณโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒณ

Plants & Flowers โค๏ธ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒผ

Plants and flowers Apart from charming sunsets and colourful glass, there are many other nature subjects that attract my attention, with plants and flowers taking a good deal of consideration. Regardless the season of the year, there are always interesting natural findings, in the parks and gardens around my place, that deserve to be framed with a nice shot.  In this day and age, I … Continue reading Plants & Flowers โค๏ธ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒผ

Le mie succulente preferite ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

Ho cominciato a collezionare succulente solo qualche mese fa, dopo aver realizzato che i miei prolungati periodi di assenza da Londra non mi permettevano di mantenere in vita delle piante nel mio appartamento. Le uniche piante che erano riuscite a sopravvivere, anzi a rigoglire, senza cure ae senza annaffiamenti erano le succulente. Ormai ho in casa una bella collezione di oltre 30 piantine di varie … Continue reading Le mie succulente preferite ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

Succulent show โค๏ธ๐ŸŒตโค๏ธ

A few days ago I went to my first botanical show and it was really a revelation. For months now I have been developing my personal collection of succulents, stemming from the realisation that these are the only plants that can survive my prolonged periods of absence from home. Because these are plants whose natural habitat is the desert, they actually thrive without water and … Continue reading Succulent show โค๏ธ๐ŸŒตโค๏ธ
