honduran white tent bats roosting under a heliconia leaf, which they sever down the length of its midrib to create a ‘tent’ that provides a waterproof shelter and protection from potential predators.
It took 24 years, but I finally learned how to make a decision and stick to it without allowing my parents opinion to sway my own.
This kalanchoe is a bit of an unusual sight (apart from the bite mark) because it’s actually a cutting that has started to root … everywhere! I’m letting run its course then, once new leaf growth starts appearing, I’ll either plant this further into the soil, or trim the top roots.
In case you were wondering, this pot is actually hidden using a porcelain candle holder. A small tray is placed at the bottom and it can be watered as normal.
