Getting back to our new inductee, let the record show that it is part of our gastronomy. It is also a favorite in other places in the Caribbean. In Puerto Rico, is an iconic dish with rice, even though one can create many concoctions with these beans of intense and peculiar color and fragrance.
I got the seeds from the abandoned next door house.. Only one was planted to avoid rumors about the theoretical allelopathy from this small bush.
The plus one in the tittle is the Spathiphyllum, a present, an totally inadequate plant for Santurce or any hot, dry and flat topography, not far from the Atlantic. This silly looking plant requires cool and humid environments. By the guai, the two behind it, are Pseuderantemun carruthersii, interesting and not abused bushes.
Spathifhyllum are abused in too many instances. Not long ago, in one of my other blogs, I used the expression common place plants, since they are in every other backyard in Puerto Rico, and a couple of lame bloggers from Florida felt insulted. This plant, like others in template countries may be a big deal for some one track mind gardeners, but who cares. A garden is a whole, not divided parts.
Thanks to Amanda Abella...... for her kind review. A compliment to yours truly for this blog:
