Hot air

This is the last bunch of flowers from the lipstick plant. Flowering season has stopped for now. The leaves seem to be turning yellow as well. I blame it on the hot and dry air blowing from the aircon compressor which my son had just installed to act as a chiller for his aquarium. I can't move the compressor, so I have moved my plant to another area in the patio.

I'm surprised the succulents are still doing fine. In fact, they're slowly outgrowing their home. I may have to remove some rocks and drift wood to make space. It's placed directly beneath the lipstick plant, so they're constantly showered with red confetti from above. They may like the hot air from the compressor. It's like a dessert environment.

  1. I can see all the nice lipsticks on the succulents ha ha... The dry wind is defintely a no no for this plant. I think your lipstick plant will need a 'hair cut' later also ;-) Nonetheless, it's a pretty plant. I am still looking for one.

    Btw, you have a nice succulent dish garden!
