2013 New Loquat tree

20 Jun

The big one is about 4ft tall and I bought from a store. The little one was picked out from under a neighbours loquat tree. He’s only a foot tall and I randomly planted him with my last years aubergines for now.

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 mini swamp

20 Mar

Guilty! I definitely should be finding a new home for these babies but I don’t have time to work out what I want to house them in. So for now, here’s my lotus mini swamps. Leaves are opening ­čÖé

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.
