Lovely collection, for how long have you been collecting them and what was the cost?

The rooftop project had been underway for two years. There are broad categories to its completion:
1- Plants: cactuses n succulents, commercial bonsai, my own bonsai, perennials.
2- Cement pots and paint: half of the pots you see here have been painted by me
3- Potting media and zameen dost fertilizer: both used in 1:1. Both close to 1 tonne.
4- Drip irrigation: Central to the viability of this garden as all plants are directly exposed to scorching sun/heat of lahore summer. I haven't used any green net. I have sourced the components for this dripline from the following: rainmakers (DHA lahore), haji sons (cavalry lahore), Amazon (USA) and local hardware store (haji Nazir hardware). The dripline is a DIY project but extremely labor intensive.
5- fencing and lighting
6- pressure pump and automatic electronic timer switch: there is no gravity support to water pressure at rooftop so having this is essential.
