Two Year Old Ice Plant Start

Monday, May 24th, 2021

I snagged a start of the ice plant from a friend’s garden. Today I noticed the ice plant bud appeared to be opening. Was unclear how that might happen. The stem of connected to the bud is brown dried and the leaves are yellowing.

I liked the flowering plant so much that I decided to attempt growing some inside.

A Tad Root Bound

Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

This is what I found when I was about to pop this little plant in the garden…

Succulent Root Bound

…and found it was somewhat root bound. After I found the condition of the plant, I popped it back in the pot. Needed to dig a larger hole.

Senecio articulatus, Botanical Illustration, Photos, Books

My Senecio articulatus looks elongated. During the day it sits on a window ledge. Why elongated? Could this be normal growth?

Senecio articulatus

This morning I googled Senecio articulatus. Most of the images did not look like my plant, but an interesting and very cool thing happened. I found a link to a botanical illustration site. One Senecio articulatus illustration was dated 1781. Gives me pause to think my plant could be connected to the plant in the illustration.

I spent some time looking at several illustrations. The images are so beautiful.
