(Space Clearing) Of the clearing and reshuffling of space | Plants

My planting space was getting really, really cluttered, what with countless experiments using hydroponics and soil methods for seeds, and propagating a lot of mints for sale, and-this-and-that.

So, I cleared more dead plants, rearranged A LOT of things, and yay, more space.

The kinds of “creativity” us apartment-dwellers with space constrains have to come up with is amazing.

SPACE!!!!

The lemon eucalyptus was growing almost to the ceiling. I repotted and repositioned it to give more upward space for it to grow.

Friday update – rearrangement

So, I managed to clear off some plants which were dying or stuff, or rotting, or planning to give them to my grandma since she requested for them. In the end, what I have is an adequate space to start on my small scale hydroponics vegetables effort.

Since my dad refused to let me use the hydroponics box, I had to come up with an alternative, which would prevent mosquitoes from breeding as well.
