The days are getting longer and it’s time to get some starts going on a couple of my plants. The variegated philodendrons got some snipping for one more plant for my meditation shack. They all get moved out there once the freezing weather Is no longer a concern. I love the color of the velvet plant, but it has a pretty weedy disposition. Will get the first pot of cuttings started and other at a later date. Then it will be time to pass the parent plant along. Then I was doing my Costco shopping and unfortunately they had a collection of ficus that had been bonsai-ed. A sucker to give it a try thinking I have the perfect place for it I brought one home. First I had to stop at a local nursery to see if I could find a compatible ground cover. What do you think? It will either be a bust or a success, or maybe a little of both. It is hard getting plants this time of year since they are coming out of green houses to the rough conditions of a new environment. Since the peperomia had to have soil adjusted (lots of major root decapitation) to fit into the ficus pot it got a temporary plastic wrap. The ficus is just going to have to adjust without babying it. Since my major problems with ficus is “getting too big” I’m not concerned about it. Should be fun to see how they partner.
