Succulent Cuttings from Work
Monday, 18 Jun 12 Partly Sunny 20°C / 68°F
Bits fall off things and I keep them. Our staff room has a high even temperature, making it perfect for seed starting and rooting, so I do a lot of this stuff on the windowsil at work.
Photo 1: I’m most excited about this, a cactus that was brought in for the plant sale, then someone knocked it over and I picked up the pieces. I placed them on a mix of seed and cutting compost and perlite, watered moderately and waited around 4 weeks for roots to appear, now I have around 5rooted cacti.
A huge thank you to Grenville for identifying this for me as Mammillaria elongata var. stella-aurata. :)
Photo 2: Hylotelephium spectabile (syn. Sedum spectabile) cutting, once again an accident – I don’t break these things on purpose!
Photo 3: Ant on Digitalis purpurea var. alba ‘Apricot Delight’
Photo 4: Clematis ‘Hagley Hybrid’
Photo 5: Aloe aristata flower. :)
