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.
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.
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 🙂
These guys grow fast! So I took this on before work.
And took this one just now, nine hours later!
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…
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!
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.
