Ornamental Peppers

Am I the only one that think these ornamental pepper plants have those dark green leaves with colorful peppers that resembles the  tree lights or the new year lights? These peppers usually start out green then eventually they turn to red. Give them more light, they will become more colorful. However, do take note that these peppers are edible, but they are very hot, so keep your pets and kids further away from these plants. You can keep them beside your Television set or your work desk and they make a beautiful arrangement. How about keep them on your living room or your tea table at your yard! They will look lovely and mesmerizing. Sure it would be a hit!

Paperwhite

This eye-catching plant resembles tranquillity and peace. However, this plant can cause container to topple over as the top gets heavier as the grow. One solution to tackle this problem is to pour out the water in the pot with your traditional gravel-and-water mixture when your paperwhite bulbs start to show roots, and replace it with mixture of water with 4 to 6 percent alcohol. This would help to reduce their growth with prevent the plants from toppling over.

Sending these flowers to your friends and loved ones on this season is an incredible way to wish them all the best in everything and telling them how much you care for them!
