Tuesday Tip - Repot Your Plants

The Tuesday Tip of the day...Repot Your Plants!

 So I've had this plant for years. I am not even sure where I got it -- it is the only one that has survived my black thumb. So I talked about this plant - how it was dormant. I couldn't kill it (like the "others") and I couldn't get it to grow. Yes, I am that dumb. So, last summer I decided to repot it. Oh my goodness, I seriously thought I was in a Little Shop of Horrors sequel. C'mon, you remember that movie? Feed me, Seymour? No? Okay, well this plant had roots like carrots - okay, maybe tree trunks! Here it is:

Ummm... where is the dirt? (a little embarrassing!)

The sad ending to the story is because of HIM:

The plant isn't poisonous to cats, but he kept eating it and having an allergic reaction...so the plants found a new home at my sister's house!

This is all I have left:

Three aloe plants that don't seem to have any "aloe" in them! LOL

In case you haven't seen Little Shop of Horrors:

 Maybe I will opt for the "NEARLY NATURAL" silk version:

  1. I always replant my plants, I've never trusted the soil that they come in (lacking nutrients, etc). I picked up this adorable little tree at Ikea a couple months ago and repotted it when I got home and the roots looked just like yours! I was shocked! So I loosened the soil between the roots and replanted. Now the tree is growing new branches and looks great!

  2. Sometimes gardeners do forget

  3. hanging baskets for shade areas That is really nice to hear. thank you for the update and good luck.

You're playing your favourite game, and getting pretty good at it too, then suddenly the screen goes blank and that fateful message appears "DISC READ ERROR". All of a sudden you get extremely frustrated really fast and all you can do is let out a scream...
