The Mickey Mouse Plant

No where to go on Christmas night, and my hands get very itchy as i walked into the garden so i took out my tool box and started to do some annual refurbish work - painting - I have serious addiction to white paint :)

I painted these two pots white, one with a Mickey Mouse plant sitting inside. This plant has been neglected for a year, by putting it in the car porch exposed to only little indirect sunlight and almost no fertilizer at all (ok, i know i was bad)... But i promised i will treat her good from now on, hoping that she will give me some flowers by this coming Chinese New Year, haha.

This is how a Mickey Mouse plant looks like when in bloom,
from flowers to fruits.

Happy Sunday!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I am trying to grow a MM plant from seedling I collected by the roadside.

I love the MM plant! Where do you come up with all these cool plants? You have an amazing garden!
Smell some for me- mine are all under snow!

Wow! You have an amazing garden! I can only dream to have something as beautiful as yours, but my garden is small and too condensed :)

Yup, I notice white vases and pots aren't that so available and cost a fortune. I resorted to painting as well... :).. High five!

Anyway, your DIY are pretty amazing. You are very talented!

Wah Rajinnya at night painting. Is it more easier to paint white in the dark. Don't get sunburn either.Can't wait to see your Mickey Mouse plant.Milka.....THANK YOU so much for the lovely gifts. I really love it so much. I showed it off to my whole family. A very lovely gift.

The mickey mouse plant looks very funny! I am sure it will forgive all and continue to grow nicely.

I've never heard of this plant, Milka, it's beautiful. I wonder if I can find one here, I will have to give it a look. Sounds like a lovely Christmas to me, spending in the garden. It's very cold here now and I am missing my hours in the garden. I know you understand how it soothes the soul.

Happy New Year's Eve and a beautiful day into the new year too!
