BLACK thumb corner. Oh the shame

18 Aug

I have neglected my lotus ­čśŽ
Will try again when I am done with all my studies. Seems harder to look after something besides regular plants that just require watering. Anyway, enough excuse. Here are the yuckie pictures – don’t hate me!

Rehoming growing lotus

24 Mar

I moved everything around a little bit as the lotus water was getting yuckie and it needed a bigger home. I found this fish bowl laying around so hopefully it will be perfect for my little lotus.

Also added rocks to the vase lotus.

Lotus seeds growing already!

6 Mar

I’m pleasantly surprised these little guys are growing already. I was so excited to see this tiny bit of greeness emerging from one of the seeds in the water bottle experiment.

I almost forgot to check out the seeds in the jar with seeding medium in it…

Lotus seeds. New project!

27 Feb

Wish me luck!

So I bought these seeds on eBay. They’re rock hard. I read you have to scar the outer shells to reveal the creamy white inner part. So I filed away for a long time on most of them, then dropped them in the water.

Lets see what happens next!
Keep watching!

As you can see I have two experiments going on, one I just dropped into a bottle of water, part 2, I added some seed started medium to the water and then dropped the seeds in.
