The Morning Glories were grown from harvested seed.

The Morning Glories needed more space for growth.

Candytuft and Nigella

Candytuft (Iberis)

The plant is a volunteer from a wildflower seed mix planted last year. It is growing in a pot of French dandelions I am growing for the bunnies.

Nigella

I topped the Nigella and it developed flowers lower on the stem. Don’t recall this ever happening in the past.

Repotted Root Bound Sansevieria

Sansevieria

Sansevieria

I gently removed all of the soil and transplanted into five pots.
I bound the plants to give them a little support until they settle in.

Sansevieria

Two leaves were broken. Even though the leaves were a bit yellow and didn’t appear healthy, I thought I would try propagating them in water. Better than throwing them in the recycle bin.

Sansevieria Leaves

I notched the bottom of the leaf after reading an article about propagating Sansevieria in water.
