A jungle in a concrete jungle

'



In the midst of a 21st century concrete jungle of Singapore, I protected myself with a green jungle, Nanyang technologgical Univeristy.  This jungle gave reprieve and enjoyment to my overseas friends. 

I had a gardening column in a website which provided a lot of information on "How to grow in a tropical island."

Here are just some of my plants.

Johor Ferns give a good carpet cover

I grew the bird's nest fern from a little seedling, and put it under a big tree.

Blue ginger aka galangal for curry, Thai and Chinese dishes.

Yellow ginger aka Tumeric,

Peace lily.

Dracaena

Pandan

Banana for fruit and leaves

Papayas.


The others are local herbs.
