Wednesday pre-work update

Focusing on edibles this morning before I went to work. They’re growing relatively well.

My rosemary plant and closeup.

Eau de cologne mint.

African violet babies.


Onions/spring onions.

Live sphagnum moss on a lyer of dried sphagnum moss.

Lady’s fingers seedlings.

Seedlings I germinated for people – cinammon basil, catnip, lemon basil, lemon mint.

My own batch of seelings.


Saturday update

Condensation in the pure perlite sphagnum moss container.

The LSF container.

Sphagnum in pure water.

The absolutely stunning D. spatulata I got from Sandy.

Close up.

Sphag in pure perlite.

Sphag on LFS.

In water.

Carnivorous plant medium owning the bedside today.

The CPs must own it too…my bedside I mean.

Yups. All growing well.

Sphagnum moss

Got more clumps of sphagnum moss from Sandy to try out!


I’ve separated them into three types of media/containers:
1. Pure water
2. Pure dried sphagnum moss/LFS
3. Pure perlite.

Now to see which one grows the fastest under the same conditions…

Live sphagnum moss | Drosera paradoxa | Unidentified plant | Red ruffles coleus

The LSM.

The LSM on top of the dried spag moss in the container above; one small piece of LSM on wet perlite in the container below.

Close up of LSM on top of dried spag.

In the container. Some still contain bits of perlite.

Lid left slightly open for ventilation.

Red ruffles coleus getting the morning sun.

Can’t remember what this is. Chinese keys maybe. It’s budding.

Close up of bud.
