Enthusiast of every exotic plant with a neat aspect such as Palms, Cycads, Agavaceae, ferns, bulbs that can withstand -5°C. I've built a rather large collection, with a jewel : Asplenium australasicum. Amazing the cold this fern was able to withstand !
I try now growing some Epiphytes.
With a somewhat cold and dry climate I have to.go up at least 2 steps. I 'm standing now on the first one : selecting plants that are cold-hardy enough. About 10 exotic species were able to go through bad Winters.
The second step is going to come :puling the plants out their pots to grow them really epiphyticaly. I suppose Epiphyllum and Bromeliads are going to be the winners in a dry climate.
I like to share experiences.
