Hi folks
Here are a few new looks for base game orchid (aka Mystic Life Flower) and Blue Sky Bonsai - which I've turned into a flowering tree.
Both plants come with "natural" looking, aged pots.

As a bonus, I've included six recolors of Plumeria tree (Bon Voyage expansion is needed for this one).
- with new leaves and flowers it finally doesn't look like made of plastic!

After I recolored the bonsai, I discovered this mesh by Sims99Fanatic:
Table plants for the floor part I
- that makes the orchid and the bonsai much bigger. So now I wish I made larger texture for the tree (sigh)..
But, hey - it still looks nice as a large plant Especially if you stack one on top of another!
Also, check out this fun mesh: bonsai by Mutske


EA, for the textures

What a great idea, and a good set of recolours! I often think the plumeria is just the right size for my needs, and then delete it again as soon as I see how bad it looks. I really look forward to using these in my game!

Glad you like it
I never used Plumeria tree for the same reason. Original leaf texture is way too dark - it has actual black in it
