    I have a selection of Aglaonema and Dieffenbachia which are shade plants that love the tropics ,if fact are hard to kill,they grow here like weeds .
    If you decide to cull some plants out because they get too crowded and throw them onto a heap they continue to grow.


    Aglaonema crispum .common name ,drop tongue.
























    Aglaonema rembrandt


















    Aglaonema brevispathum hospitum cv just a new one .










    I will post more species that I don't have reliable names for.














































































    Now a few Dieffenbachia species .the first on is Dieffenbachia maculata .the only one with reliable sp. name















































    Dieffenbachia maculata grown some .this one I have not had long.

























    That is the end of the Aglaonema Dieffenbachia plants . Thanks for watching I hope you enjoyed :donald:

    The aglaonema are wonderful looking plants, Pixie. You are so lucky to be able to grow them so readily in your tropical rainforest garden. They look magnificent in that setting. Have never heard of this species of plant before, either, so thank you for introducing me to it.

    Your dieffenbachias also look great in the same setting. These plants I do know & have had them growing in pots. The most recent one was a Tropic Marianne, a lovely soft yellow with dark green edging & ribs. Trouble is that rotten mealy bugs liked it as well, & no matter what I treated it with, they continued to thrive. The plant, itself, was as tough as old boots & the mealy bugs did not bother it but I was worried for my other plants, especially the spathiphyllum & dracaena fragrans massangeana, which were nearby. So, eventually, after a couple of years or more, I tossed it as it was getting floppy & daggy looking. Your dieffenbachia look much better than mine did.

    Thank you for posting more images of your fabulous garden. :clap: :cool4:

    Great pics of your plants again Pixie. How lucky you are to have the right habitat and climate to be able to grow such a variety of lovely plants outdoors. You look as if you live on the edge of the forest ?? if so I really do envy you so much.



    Thanks for allowing us to see your garden plants.

    yes it is as they say horses for courses, Pixie and depending on where we live rules to a large degree what we can grow. Where we live here in the Cotswold hills with our frosts during the winter, means that our flowers are mostly grown during the spring and summer months, a few in autumn but we can start having frosts in October and they can go on til May. I'm mainly a fruit and veggie person,my wife's interest is the flowers. But having said that we do the gardens between us, although i do most of the sowing and propagating.



    We do have some pretty flowers so i'll get some pics together and find somewhere here to post.

    We would love to see the flowers from your gardens, BigBilly. A good place to post your pics of them would be the Floral Gardens section, just under the Veggie Gardens, or even Flower Images in The Recreation Area category.

    Looking forward to seeing them. :smile:
