A Successful 3rd Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange

Still remember Mamarazzi blogged about the Plant Exchange activity? She was busy labeling the plants to bring to the exchange last week. Not an easy task.

That morning she loaded all the plants into the car. She also cut some of the aloe vera from her garden to be distributed out to the visitors there so that they can bring home to cook or for facial.

And guess what...poor me...I had to sit next to the stinky Aloe Vera cutting.  Yeah...the aloe had a very stinky smell .



These are a portion of the plants that were up for adoption. 


 The President of Bukit Jelutong Green Ranger, Datin Sivam giving a short speech to officiate the Plant exchange . 

 Followed by Ms Angie Yim giving talk on Vermicompost. Wah.... amazing leh. The little worms likes Pizza ah......I mean pizza box ah... Like that I can eat the pizza and they can have the box la. Win-Win.  Listening to the talk , Papa also keen to try out Vermicompost.

At 10.45am, the plants adoption started. In no time, all the plants were adopted. The adoption drive ended around 11.30am  due to overwhelming response .

Mamarazzi was so happy that all her babies were adopted.

 During this plant exchange, Mamarazzi managed to adopt Water Hyacinth for her Water Lily Pond Pot.

 Batik Cekur plant and an unknown plant. 

 
Sessilis Joyweed. It's said to be good for block arteries.

 Decorative pomegranate

 This basil pretty strange. It have a spicy scent. Labelled as White basil but Papa google and couldn't find it.

 Papa was very "guai". He only adopted a Plumeria. 

Haiz...the sad thing was.... Mamarazzi forgotten to bring her Dwarf Papaya babies to the plant exchange. But nevermind... a friend  is going to adopt all of them for his donation drive. Yipee!...hopefully they will find good homes. 


A member of the gardening group, Aking, had donated one big bucket of rabbit poo for her garden. So generous of him. 

Now looking forward to the next plant exchange. Thank you very much to Karen and BJ Green Rangers for organising this event.

  1. I just love and enjoy reading about Mamarazzi's' enthusiasm on gardening...and the joy she has in sharing them with others too! Even paparazzi is in the scene:) - A family interest - YAY!! We have vermicompost - our friends find it either fascinating, scary or pure YUCK...the truth is...it's fun - it doesn't entail much work...it will be a good quiet pet for small Kucing:)

    2. A question for mamarazzi: Can you please tell me how you cook aloe vera? Is it for food use or for cosmetic use? I got some aloe vera plant this year for the first time and am interested to know how to use them:)

      Mamarazzi heard that there are some edible aloe and some not edible. Do check before cooking

      We can use the gel from aloe as mask. Just apply on the face and wssh it off after it had dried. It's said to be mosturising.

      Oh ya..if you havr burnt, apply it to the burn and it will recover fast. Mamarazzi did that to me when i burnt my fingers

  5. What an interesting plant exchange using the word adoption. This is a very healthy hobby looking at plants daily and not Pokemon. Ha ha...

    Replies
    1. Coz we can either directly exchange plants with the people there or we can just place the plants on to the table and let them be adopted.

      Mamarazzi pulak love to do everything in bulk. Bring plants in bulk and put them up for adoption. It's a very happy feeling to see people taking her plants home.

      Pokemon? Papa caught many pokemon at my school . Good fengshui spot for pokemon

  19. What a neat way to learn about new plants and to exchange them... It reminds me of the Christmas Cookie Exchanges we have in our country. People makes all kinds of different Christmas cookies --and then meet as a group ---and everyone goes home with lots of different varieties of cookies to share with loved ones for Christmas.

    I posted some flower pictures today on my blog.
    Hugs,
    Betsy
