Look of the Day - Black and White at Flower Dome

At the Succulent Garden of the Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay
Succulents are water-storing desert plants belonging to families such as Cacti, Aloes and Crassulas. Often found in semi-deserts, succulents are plants that store water in their leaves and stems so that they can tolerate dry weather conditions. Most have thick leaves and stems that act like water storage tanks. Succulents are usually grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance as well as low maintenance. In Mexico, the Blue Agave plant is harvested for something cool – tequila!

South African Tree Grape ( Cyphostemma Juttae)

South African Tree Grape ( Cyphostemma Juttae)
Originating from the arid regions of Nambia, the Tree Grape has a distinctive swollen caudex that functions as a stem and root. As the loss of foliage during draught is a common occurrence, the function of leaves and photosynthesis is taken up by the branches which are noticeably green.

I think I would rather receive this than a rose…a man’s love is suppoused to be lasting afterall, so what signifies that better than a hardy cactus? ;)

Wooly Cactus (Vatricania guentheri)
A native of the Andes of Bolivia, this cactus has a succulent stem, golden spines and a lateral wooly cephalium, which not only protects the flowers against desication but also pollinating bats from its spines. Oh so considerate!

And this must be the most infamous cactus of them all – for quite obvious reasons ;)
It’s one of my favourites too, I always go back to see how well it is growing…inch by inch LOL. Mother Nature sure has her sense of humour.
