I featured the jewel orchid in my February Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day post... so why not stick with that lovely plant for this month's Foliage Follow-up, too? After all, I often pause in the morning at the top of the stairs to admire how the lace curtain makes fun light patterns on its back lit leaves:
And I can hardly feature the jewel orchid without mentioning the cute little succulent plant that shares its pot:
Jewel orchids tend to get a little on the leggy side, so I scattered some broken pieces of a tiny succulent in between its knobby knees a year or more ago, in an effort to make the pot look a little less sparse:
I love that it has grown up taller than the jewel orchid now. Somehow its spindly height seems to balance the orchid's draping growth:
A lovely starburst of murano glass (brought back from Italy for me by my friend Jessica) brightens up this little side table, along with the bold stripes of "Lemon Lime" dracaena:
The dracaena adds a little height, too, without taking up too much table space. Perfect for the little nook at the top of the stairs--and for making sure that the subtle jewel orchid isn't too overwhelmed by something else!
That's all I have for today... but if you're a fellow fan of all things leafy, make sure that you check out all of the other lovely foliage posts left in the comments at Pam's Foliage Follow-up!
