So the weather is finally warming up about time if you ask me!
Here are some photo of my morning glory pot. And yes I meant for it to be crowded. What I forgot was a lot of plants means lots of water needs. (Well at least for morning glories)
In this pot is 2 grandpa ott, 2 scarlet o'hara, 2 milky way, 2 moonflower, and 1 4 o'clock in the center. I keep my plants indoors so I am hoping they cross pollinate and I get random seeds.
When I made the bamboo arch thingy I accidentally pinched one of the scarlet o'hara when I brought the pot down from my room to the living room. I swapped it out and put in a different scarlet o'hara in. But I made the mistake of dipping the healthy scarlet o'hara's roots in root growth hormone thinking it would grow better as it settles into its new home.
WELL I think that was dumb. Either it definitely didn't need it or the stuff was too strong too much and burnt the roots. It's leaves started to curl in and for a while its stalk was wilty now the stalk is nice and firm up but the leaves are still iffy making me wonder if it will survive. Worse I think when I watered it some of the hormone drifted to two other plants my milky way and grandpa ott. Though the grandpa ott's leaves I think got some damage from the cold too... not sure. And the milky way had trouble getting the shell off its leaves so I think it hurt the leaves a little.
It's good to say though with all this planty drama that finally I am seeing sprouts of the real leaves growing. Maybe you can see them too in the above photos?
THIS is the morning glory that got pinched. That was on the 12th of this month. Today is the 19th.
I cut the leaves and tiny bit of stem about where I hurt it and dipped it also in the hormone root growth stuff. I also did it to the cut end of the stem and tucked both into soil. Somehow both are still alive... not 100% sure HOW but if new leaves sprout from the starter leaves I'll be happy. I'm not 100% sure what I was thinking for the stem. But I'll let both grow for as long as they can and see what (if anything) happens.
