Thanks Guifo.

Stonener....but it wont smell as good......


This Kusamono lives in a Plastic pot, for most of summer it is sleeping, I put the whole pot in the sand while it sleeps.
It just popped out last week with the coming of the fresh Autumn wind, and fist drizzle of rain.... so I brought it inside..

It is Indigenous to South Africa

What do you guys think?

Nerine filifolia





Also want to show you this fabulous long lasting Kusamono.

Mounted on 'Hardekool' a very very hard wood found in the Namib desert, its also very heavy! These stumps lie in the desert for many decades with almost no weathering. They are excellent for mounting Epiphytes.

Who can guess what this is, its very common.



Love and light

Oooh, now we can realize I've been too negative regardless of my saying that I'm not pessimistic myself Very Happy I've considered that to be a "zero-0" not a circle....

André, very nice plant this nerine filifolia of yours. Such an ethereal impression just like the filigran lace!
By the way, what is this creature under the cloche?

Hello Andre,
Thank you for preparing some nice displays for us to reflect on.
Early autumn,
The tree skulls of winter, spring and summer are firm and cleanly put away in safe remembrance
yet the winter skull is already looking at us from the other realm trough the thin glass that divides us from him.
The summer heat glowing from the tapestry of the earth, is decreasing
but the turquoise stone holds some green to his blue soul.
The winter grey, spring green and summer pink of the Nerine is nervously contemplating coming things,
will it soon be put away in the bell glass?

Thanks Sunip, nice analysis....my Blue stone represents water, I call it my water stone, reminds me of a rock lying beneath the waves in Cristal clear water.

The green and Pink represents Winter here by us, this is the start of the Rainy season, everything popping out in colour and green Wheat fields all around... In the Summer Everything around us is brown, in Fact the natural vegetation, Rhenoster (Rhino) bush, becomes black...The region where I live is called the Swartland (Blacklands) because of this.

well ya! wait what? bored? no way dude!
I love orchids, way much, forever!
The last one you posted on the wood is spectacular.
but there extremely hard to grow in my area, well except for cymbidiums.
my favorite are the Cypripedium's & Paphiopedilum's
But my frist love are the Cycadales of South Africa!
have been looking for a red color variety forever dude!



My "first love"... Basketball

Hello Andre,
Here some for you.
I made these pictures last week on a volcanic island in the Atlantic.
As you see; blackland flowering.

Wow , that is very surreal!

Are those sedums in the second pic, or is it echeverias's.

What did you go and do there?


Just to add interest, some accents, it took me two days to drill a hole in the bottom of this tea cup. Bone China is even Harder!!

Hello Andre
I do not know the species.
You are enjoying autumn there but we are trying to get some spring here,
well i could not wait and went south to get some warmth and visited the island from top to bottom
Your accent is quit cosy,
did you used a diamond drill?

Have you ever seen such a beautiful display.

This Kusamono is to big to bring into the house anymore. Its smell like Ylang ylang

I present to you Coelogyne rochussenii

This Orchid use to grow on trees overhanging the Riverbanks in Bornea. Can you imagine going down river on a boat with this flowers hanging meters down overhead and perfuming the forest! Like a fairytale.
Sadly, there are no more trees, next to the Riverbanks in Bornea....

WoW! Talk about overwhelming the senses!
It's a symphony for the eye's
it's hard to focus on one, so many wonderful types!
Love that pitcher vine, grows here but can't be found!
Andre! thanks for the peek into your world!
But a little confused, I think I see two different flower types overhead?
I only know of one kind of plant with two size blooms!
Akebia quinata chocolate vine
both male and female flowers on same stem!

The Coelogyne rochussenii  in the previous photo collapsed into a heap of fungal decay, when we went on holiday.

 it sulked I think.   missed me to much.

I  saved one Pseudobulb,  so to get that many flowers on one bush.....hard years of attention awaits again.  Iris would know, this is the thing with Orchids, when they become specimens, they tend to die on one.      One moment of silence please.....silent 

This isnt completely ready as an accent, but I had to show you the miniature bulbs flowering....This is a magical charm accent. The Hawhortia limifolia in the middel is used as a magical charm in many tribes in South Africa.



Chonophytum ..... represents Winter in the Desert



Another full flowering Kusamono

Dre! dude that third picture knocked my socks off! looks absolutely amazing...ThumbsUp 
I bet the rising heavenly fragrance is nothing but overwhelmingly awesome!...Like a Star @ heaven 
excellent clump! perfect size, style, shape & pot color, great for Tokonoma display...Like a Star @ heaven 
would go nicely with a large black pine or just about anything, even by themselves...Like a Star @ heaven 
IMHO the 3 bulbs on right hand side with the Aerial roots! You should seriously consider removing?
and then sending them to me immediately... Basketball

Thank you stonener....took me four years to fill the pot, now I have to break it up again!  Isn't it Fun!!

It seems like I post this only for you.  

So we can say what we like, cause like with your stones, I dont think anybody bothers,   .... rude bastards!!Laughing Laughing Laughing :lol

But I keep on saying that, but then something awesome flowers, and I think..' one has to share this'  !

Of course I will send you the pseudobulbs of the Orchid, speedpost!, do you think they will last in a box for 4- 5 days?    No need to give me postage, I already owe you for the last stone you send me!  The 'Crazy hour' stone, remember?

You are going to die if you see the pebbles that my Brother picked up for me in the Tankwa Karoo National Park...and the stones.....Beautiful!!  Elephant Skin Stones!  I will give you first choice for a swap again!   Howz that?  What is nice, is that  I have the exact GPS of each stone, and pebble!

Love and light my Friend
Dre

Miltonia spectabilis - I believe it is native to Brazil. Lovely warthm tolerant, sun loving orchid. Nicely bloomed. Well done. I used to grow this species, its a good one.

Your Coelogyne rochussenii was amazing, I will mourn with you the loss of this plant. Fortunately it is available in USA and EU, even if it is getting rare in Borneo. They form massive specimens, a bit large for most displays. I am sure this was stunning in person.

I have Coelogyne speciosa, a much more compact plant, which only opens one or two flowers at a time, but the flowering stem will put out a dozen or more flowers over a 6 or 8 month period. Look for that one as kusamono. Nice long blooming season.

I also liked your Cattleya walkeriana hybrid. (It looks like a hybrid to me, rather than the species walkeriana) I have always thought the 'miniature' cattleya hybrids would work as kusamono.

Was that a Liparis species you showed in the one image? I am only slightly familar with the group, I don't recognize which species it is. That is beautifully grown.

Thank you Stonener  for the compliments.  And thank you John to take the time.....what is joy if you cant share it?

Thanks Leo for responding on the Miltonia....I new it was common but still a pleasure to behold....and so easy.....like I was in my youth!Laughing Laughing

Leo the Leparis is  Leparis condybulbon, and very soon Stonener will have a piece and then he pass it along when its big enough,  very rewarding plant.    

I will look for that Coelogyne speciosa, thank you for that, and thanks for rochussenii's compliment.

Love and light guys.
