Time for a planty update! I know you’ve been waiting 😄🌿
Our little chilli has been sprouting flowers like never before! Now I’ve never grown chilli before, but I think this means that the flowers will eventually bloom out and give way to fruit?? Fingers crossed!
In the space of a week it suddenly started budding and blooming, so rewarding!
Another one that is just loving life ATM is the Doctor! I didn’t even know it could flower until a few weeks ago, now it’s all it wants to do. Growing season in my 💚
We have a newcomer! Well, two actually, but let’s start with this one. The other night D. spotted a couple of plants outside of an Asian deli across the street from our apartment, they we’re getting rid of them! They both looked a bit worse for wear, but I’m up for a challenge. Lugged this tall, heavy thing in to our building and straight in to the shower for some TLC.
Pruned, showered, read up about. She’s a Yucca Palm, any ideas for names??
It gives me hope that she’s sprouting little shoots and that her leaves are looking green and healthy!
The second one is a ZZ plant! It took me a while to figure out, but I knew that I recognised the leaves. It was extremely heavy and has not seen any love in a long time by the looks of it.
Pruned the worst parts and decided that it had definitely been over watered. Apparently easy to do with a ZZ!
I’m just crossing my fingers that there’s no root rot. What I probably should do is take it apart and re-pot, might just give it a few days to get used to it’s new surroundings first. And find a fitting pot..
ZZ has a relatively new shoot that makes me hopeful! And Yucca is hanging out by our sunny window until we can figure out her ideal spot. She’s a bit big for our little home, so ideally we’d get her to the bar. She happens to be as tall as me so that’s easier said than done… we’ll see what happens!
Now I’m at the bar, walked past these gorgeous roses on my way here 😍 they smelled amazing. Now I should probably stop planting about and get some work done while I’m here!
That’s all the planty updates for today, crazy plant lady signing out xx 🌱
