Peas (also known by their botanical name, Pisum sativum) are annual vegetables from the Fabaceae or Leguminosae (Legume) family.  These climbing plants produce pods filled with peas.  The peas are often the focus for gardeners and cooks, but don’t miss out on the extent of the gourmet delights that peas offer us – as all parts of the pea plant are edible – the shoots, leaves, pea pods, and the peas themselves – they’re all utterly delicious! 

Angraecum moandense is an orchid species that hails from the rainforests of a wide range of exotic, tropical locations, including: Cameroon, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, the Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zaire.  Plants produce small, pale greenish yellow coloured flowers, which have reflexed petals and from a distance look rather leaf-like in their appearance.

This is a miniature orchid species whose natural home is growing in amongst trees and other plants, in damp humid rainforests, where competition for space is great and plants grow close to one another, growing cheek by jowl. 

Chlorophytum comosum is usually harder to find than the more commonly found, variegated forms of Chlorophytum comosum.  However, this all green form is easier to grow than the variegated types of spider plant.  Chlorophytum comosum copes better with lower light levels and this form is more resilient than any of the variegated spider plants, so if you love spider plants but your home is not quite bright enough to grow the variegated forms successfully, you may want to seek out this green leaved form of Chlorophytum comosum. 

Aerangis biloba is a small sized, epiphytic orchid species, which is endemic to Africa, where this plant grows on the branches of trees that grow in humid forests and woodlands.

Before I grew Aerangis biloba myself, I was previously under the impression that Aerangis biloba would only grow in very low light levels, in very shaded conditions, however, I have found that Aerangis biloba will happily grow under bright light as well as in partial shade. 

Angraecum distichum is a miniature sized, epiphytic orchid species, which can be found growing upon trees and plants in a shaded locations in areas of rainforest.  This orchid species can be discovered growing upon trees, which are found growing over a wide range of tropical locations, from the Congo to Angola, Rwanda, and across Africa.

Angraecum distichum favours very humid growing conditions.
