Spruce up your bottoms, Glug Glug, Friends

Category: The back yard | Posted: Fri Nov 12, 2010 6:32 am

The plants that are chosen for window spots always want to look their best otherwise they find themselves relegated to the basement looking up at a grow light. A plastic bottom while functional and prevents spills that damage the window sill only go so far for esthetics. A couple of years ago I started buying colorful single plates of various sizes and shapes at discount stores to replace the plastic bottoms. The plants look better with a colorful plate or bowl under them. You were thinking plant bottoms.....Right?:-)

Tomorrow is watering day it takes one gallon upstairs and two gallons for the thirsty jungle looking up at grow lights. Sometimes I spike the water with fertilizer, the plants enjoy a good feast.

Last year I tried to winter-over a Mandevilla and failed miserably. This years Mandevilla is doing better. It has grabbed on to a Philodendron for support and encouragement. They have become fast friends:-)

Preview.......Submit......Goodnight

That sounded sweet to me too Frank. Plant friends took on a new meaning. Cute.
