It’s the time of the year again. Most of the plants benefited from the cool spell last week, others have barely survived. Overall the garden seems to have recovered from the heat. Had a fungicide spraying session yesterday as a safety measure of the unsuspecting rot.
The leaf cuttings of the Begonia rex have sprouted plantlets (below), altogether five. Might have to wait a further two weeks before they can be repotted to a clay pot. They are placed in bright shade at the moment, away from rain.
This Huperzia squarrosum (below) had to be staked to keep the elongating frond tips from drooping out of shape.
These fittonias (below) were bought during last year’s nursery clearance sales. They are easy growers as long as given plenty of bright indirect light and free draining medium. I feed these plants with osmocote pellets and they seem to take well.
You could say that once the weather warms up over the next few months, we should see plenty of new growth coming up. Also at this time of the year is a good time for propagating plants following fair weather.
