Photos of plants to inspire and amuse.

Two Titans

Of the eight Amorphophallus titanum seeds I planted, one rotted, two are growing, and the others are still somewhere in between.

First Titan Leaf

It still lives in a plastic bag, under lights, on a heating mat, but it’s about to outgrow all three.

Punk Rock Solanum atop Buena Vista Park

Don’t get too close. He could totally kick your ass.

Fall at the SF Botanical Garden

It’s fall in San Francisco, a great time to visit the SF Botanical Garden.

Slipper Season

It’s Paphiopedilum season in Plantgasm Gardens right now.

Stunning Crinum moorei Bloom

For the last few weeks, it’s been working on a bloom, and this week the first flower opened.

I Always Feel Like Somebody’s Watching Me

My Pleiospilos nelii, aka Split Rock plant, is watching me.

Nasty, Nice Nasturtium

I’ve seen Nasturtium vines engulf whole bushes, spread over an entire park, and possibly abduct children.

Masdevallia floribunda flowers

It’s always exciting when an orchid flowers for the first time.

They Are Hugging

They may not be pretty, but they’re still pretty sweet.
