For some reason, working with my plants relaxes me. I also get excited when I discover one of my plants has a baby. For example: my aloe plant. It usually sits in my craft room window, and on my way to work yesterday, I happened to look as I was passing and noticed it had a baby! Plus, it was leaning hard against the window and the bottom leaves were shriveled up. I knew right then what I would be doing that night: re-potting. It wasn’t the only one that needed redone, so I figured if I’m doing one, I should do all the ones that need it. So, project time began.
For the baby aloe, I planted it in a big pot. Done.
Then, after some research, I read that I could take off the crappy leaves, cut off the bad part, and replant. I read not to water it for about a week and then water once a week until re-established. The pictures below show the process along with some of the other plants that I re-potted. Here’s hoping it works!
Then, it was time to attack the coffee plant. I read that if you divvy up the coffee plant into the individual trees, you can grow actual coffee baring coffee trees. Soo…. I’m giving it a go. No, I’m not keeping all of them. Just a couple. :p
Also, I now have a tree. Well, I have a few trees, but this one is a large one!! Have you ever bought something, reached your vehicle, only to think, “huh… how is this going to fit?” I have one of those moments. :p It fit, though! Just… took some… well… tweaking. Behold! My palm tree!!
Yep. I have a palm tree. I’ve been wanting one and I found it for the right price. I might move it to my bedroom. I don’t know yet. If I do, I’ll need another tree for that table. LOLOLOL!!
Is it time to start singing the Lion Sleeps Tonight? Because we’re in the jungle, baby! 😀
