"I took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."
One of my all time favorite films, and completely goo-goo-eyed for David Bowie.
Some pictures from today.
- potting soil
- plant clipping
- small stones *optional*
*if your container has a small hole in the bottom of it you can skip the stones*
| Fill your container of choice with potting soil.|
*if you have some small stones, add them first to the bottom of the container - this will provide a reservoir for water to pool and prevent the soil from becoming over saturated*
|Dig a small hole in the center (about 1/2 the depth of the container).|
|Place the 'open' end of the clipping (where it was detached from the original plat) into the hole.|
|Fill in the hole with soil. As you do this GENTLY press down the soil around the plant clipping - add more soil as required.|
Water enough to dampen soil (if the water pools and does not absorb then there is too much).
|Find a sunny place for your new plant to grow :)|
Check back daily.
Maybe rotate the plant periodically so that it gets even sun.
Keep away from cold drafty windows.
Common reason house plants usually die - over watering. Just make sure the soil stays moist.
HAVE FUN! :D
|One of the downsides to the warmer weather is all the garbage that emerges from the snow :S|
It makes me sad to see so much of it when it is as simple as walking to a garbage can (often only meters away).
|This is fun - Knit Tagging?|
I took this picture at the library. I have seen a few books and some online stuff here and there about "knit tagging" but this is the first time I have come across some :)
Here are a couple sites/blogs of other people that are doing the same...
|This is a clipping off a Hyacinth that I have planted and placed in our kitchen window.|
I think it may bloom and live on! :D
|More plant clippings. I've been very keen to care for our plants lately and have been clipping and transplanting in an effort to increase the number of plants in our apartment.|
I'm very excited for spring to arrive! :P
