Posted on Apr 12, 2017 5:49 AM


I was getting some flowers for outside at a local nursery and they had some unnamed succulents for sale.
Thanks to the helpful members here I manage to attach names to them.

Ivy in water
Posted on Jan 27, 2017 11:25 AM

I was rooting some English ivy in a glass and saw a few articles on the internet about growing plants in water.
Seems to be several ways to do this. I took a basic method as this is just a test to see what happens.
I used a old flower vase about 1+ inch of charcoal and about 2+ inch of pebbles to hold plants.
Its under a 2 tube florescent bulb in my basement.

Its Alive !!

The top of the African violet I plant last month after knocking the top off of it is showing some new life.
The cutting I started from the holiday cactus is also showing some roots I started this in some water as suggested by LysmachiaMoon.
I also have one in soil that while not showing any real growth its not dead so will keep a eye on that one.
