I recently bought some aerial plants to decorate my lanai. If I'm not mistaken, these are called "pakpak lawin". This kind of aerial plants are really good for outdoor rooms and porches. I used to have these before hung on our terrace but unfortunately, this didn't last long. I don't know what went wrong but from experience, this kind of aerial plant is very difficult to thrive if not attached to the bark of a tree. This has been my second time to give it another try since I really love this "pakpak lawin".
This time, I tried adding some charcoal in a small plastic container and this is where I put the "pakpak lawin". I wouldn't say that I am 100 hundred per cent successful because not all of these repotted aerial plants survive. I still have few left though, but I was a bit disappointed not all of them survived. I'm still searching whether it is because of the absence of sun light or because the small plastic container do not have holes to drain water. I think if I have to buy another of this variety, I must try attaching this onto a drift wood.
Since I failed with this for the second time, I am thinking of trying another aerial plant variety that's not too hard to maintain. Maybe water plant or "Manaog Ka Irog".
At this stage, I'm still not satisfied with my garden. I still want to grow more varieties of ornamental plants and probably a vertical vegetable garden.
I can't wait to post here my vertical vegetable garden which I have just started.
Till my next post!
