We sighted this beauty at one of the nurseries along Jalan Sungai Buloh, Selangor in November 2013, a little over a year ago. It was love at first sight and we happily grabbed a pot of them home without hesitation.
We just love variegated foliage plants and these suit perfectly amongst the crowd of potted plants at our courtyard.
They were specially identified to adorn the courtyard which never takes a back seat.
Though mostly non-flowering, these cheer-leaders with fabulous variegated foliage are plants that we would not garden without. Hence, we maintain them well so that we can enjoy them when we’re indoors and away from the blazing sun outside, especially during the hot seasons.
However, occasionally we do need to revamp with other shade-loving plants to replace some plants that are ailing due to lack of sunlight and relocate them outdoors. They’re like our children… our garden babies and need our tender loving care, right? :-)

with family, relatives and friends.
We love them as they seem to be sprouting freely along the crevices of rocks and bricks, covering empty spaces at the inner border of our garden.
A most welcomed volunteer plant that’s happy being a part of our garden treasures.
Charming ground covers that supply us free of charge for life! Is not that great… saving a penny or two, even $$?
Who can resist such appealing free plants?
Delighted that we have relocated some in pots and even shared them with friends and neighbours who were just too happy to receive them.
Echeveria ‘Blue Curls’
Wow… it was love at first sight! This strikingly beautiful Echeveria ‘Blue Curls’ truly caught our attention from afar when we visited the Cactus Point in Cameron Highlands during our vacation in August last year.
This particular plant stood out adorably among the many potted ones that were available for sale. We bought it for a steal, just RM12! We considered it very cheap as the pot had two plants and two spikes of flowers.
A truly enchanting and remarkable beauty!
Just waiting to join our garden collection. :)

Peperomia clusiifolia ‘Jellie’ (Variegated Red-edge Peperomia)
Would you not be tempted to add this uniquely coloured Variegated Red Edge Peperomia to your garden collection? We were definitely swooned over by its amazing psychedelic colours when we first sighted numerous pots of them at Cactus Point in Cameron Highlands last October 2013. A small pot costs us just RM5, dirt cheap right?
It is one of the most impressive variegated forms of the Peperomia group that we’ve ever come across. The leaf blades are wonderfully adorned in various hues of green, ivory or cream and rosy-pink, and are beautifully bordered in red to show off their beauty. Each obovate and concave leaf is uniquely patterned.
The good news is this smallish plant is still thriving well in our garden slightly more than a year later, though foliage is not that vibrant as located at the porch that’s not receiving much sunshine. Nevertheless, we’re delighted with its on-going beauty in our garden.
Anyway, looks like I’ve to move this potted plant in a sunny location.
Its green counterpart, Peperomia clusiifolia has rather large spoon-like dark-green leaves that are slightly concave in the centre and have a characteristic red margin.
