The first dawn of November was rainy.
We went for vaccination against influenza as planned. We got shots at our familiar home doctor. The shot is easy although the written confession before is really complicated. By the way, the doctor likes plants. So, a huge bay window of his clinic is a gorgeous greenhouse. Recently, I heard he started succulents, but it is not going well. Since I have never heard about selaginella from him, I guess he does not have them.
From today, there held a selaginella exhibition of the Nagoya branch. And, this year, I found the one of the Tokai branch was held on a same day. The location is fairly close, so I decided to exhibition-clawl.
The one of the Nagoya branch was held at Shonai Green plaza. Colored leaves are key points of Selaginella in autumn. Glamorous pots were displayed that were far different from ones at my home. The point is that from spring to summer they must be kept in sunshine but not too much, they say.
Until this year, I did not notice, but this time several ones planted on rocks were displayed. Plants other than selaginella were together.
Well, as for my favorite shopping, I bought just one this year after wondering which one to pick. This is the one with small dense leaves with yellow and red color. Isn't it nice?
Next, I went to Japan Rhine flower and tree center where the exhibits of Tokai branch was held. The size of the show was much smaller, but I found this pot and bought. They say this is hardy and grows fast.
The exhibit was at the flower auction marketplace. The other shops were open as usual. Since I came this far, I walked around the shops. Then, I found this. This should grow great if I am good.
And, though this is not a selaginella, I noticed this at the succulent corner. Since it was cheap, I took this, too. It is bulbous, and have small flowers in spring.
