Most of you will agree with me on that. Some of you read my post about My 5th Floor Window, where i take many sunset photos for Skywatch Friday. Despite lack of space I planted garlic there, which somehow extremely elongated for lack of sunshine, as i am away most of the days with windows closed. Stems elongate and colors are etiolated when sunlight is limiting.
In the office I am more fortunate, as I have the 1.5 x 1.5 m glass window facing sunrise. Here, I have the only window with a forest, as I fondly call it. I tied the solid curtains for morning light to freely get through and planted mostly dwarf Sansevieria. In the past i have Tillandsia cyane, but after 2 years with one flowering, the office cleaner watered it after a hot sun, which killed it. Because the office is closed on weekends my plants go through weekly fasting, water fast to be exact. One reason I planted Sansevierias is because they are said to be pollution controllers. I planted very small seedlings, and now have already shared some pups to some officemates. Can you count how many variants I have?
These reflections produce some mimics in my mind believing I have wider gardens in my care, with more plants! The mind doesn't have emotion, it thrives on face value!
You will also see amaryllis at the left of the above photo. However, it hates partial shade and becomes lanky with very few leaves. An Ardisia is shown below, which i always pinch to suppress growth. It was placed here with lots of berries 3 years ago, but did not attempt to flower again despite the cold air inside the building. I agree it has been deprived of both sunlight and nutrients. It is not happy with me, but i am happy with it! In my little corner of the world i have personal Oxygen Generators! ....oh that struck something! If i will have a plant store i will name it as "Oxygen Generators". What do you say?
