I really like plants. I don’t really have a lot…I used to have lots and lots but with childcare it’s really hard to keep the plants (and the kids) safe.
Two years ago for Mother’s Day Kelli bought me a fern. I loved the fern and would love to really do a great job growing one. At the farm house things with the fern went pretty good….the move to the town just wasn’t really good for the fern. I think it had to find the right spot but that never happened. This spring I decided that I had to just give up on it. It was headed towards the dumpster but ended up sitting on the porch for a bit and then a new left grew..and another grew and another grew.
I know this is FAR from beautiful but it is finally getting to the point that I think it just might live.
Over the winter at the house it’s been in the south living room window but that window is under the porch.
I know little about ferns and was hoping someone might be able to give me a little advice as to where the best spot in the house might be for it. I am also guessing that it needs to be re-potted. I’ve been nervous about re-potting because the last time I re-potted a fern I killed it. Anyone who know about ferns please chime in and give me some advice. As I said, I’d really love to salvage this fern.
In other plant news…The violet starter plant that Kayla gave me bloomed.
Kayla bought a small little starter a the thrift store not knowing what color it was just knowing it needed to be re-potted. This is it’s first blooming. It’s a pinky-purple single blossom.
African Violets are my favorite. Growing up mom had so many. My favorite was always a variegated leaf with a double bloom. I’m still on the hunt for one but I think they are harder to find. Growing up, nurseries had houseplants but around here they just don’t. The big box stores have plants but I never see a variegated leaf violet.
Well that’s the plant report…feel free to share some advice with me. I have lots to learn when it comes to plants.
