I wanted to share how well my Donkey's Tail is doing. This is how it looked last summer when it was one year old. The previous summer when I first rooted it it was just 2 skinny "tails" and 4 fatter "tails".
This is how it looks now. You have to be very careful with this plant. It knows just how it much water it likes. If it doesn't have enough it will immediately panic in that you barely touch it and it'll lose one of its "leaves". These begin to root and multiply and then climb right out of the pot like this one.
Since last year I now have the plant pot sitting in a larger bowl on top of an inverted bowl. Its up higher now and that shows how much longer it is. Ideally it should be in a pot and hanging up where it isn't disturbed. I'll end up losing the little "leaves" once it grows a little more and touches my table. I just don't have a suitable spot for hanging it.
This is Sylvia my African Violet. I posted about her once before when I was at Wordpress. Our manager where I worked part-time 4 years ago rooted one leaf for each of us as a farewell gift when the store closed. My one leaf is now 4 separate plants in this pot. The original one in the store I called Geraldine. She was always in bloom even though she never saw sunlight and was in very dry soil. Three of mine in the pot are blooming, the fourth one just never does bloom. Isn't she beautiful? She loves me taking her into the kitchen sink and sprinking warm water over her leaves just as I did to her mother.
Have a lovely day.... Judi xoxo
