Plants to take to work now that I have a window cube. :3

Aralia Gold Crest in a glass vase (newbie, not sure how it’ll fare)
Serissa and oakleaf fig vine with extra light (my baby!)
Heart leaf philodendron rooted cuttings (grows so well at home, needs to be trimmed a lot)
Kalanchoe rooted leaf (hopefully will grow!)

My Sugar Baby came yesterday! Just a tiny 4” pot but hope to see it grow to a nice little shrub. :3 Hoping to keep it as an outdoor plant but we’ll see.

It’s been a while since I’ve taken a pic if the tank. I had an outbreak of blue green algae and it was pretty bad. My amazon swords are struggling, anubias and java fern get coated but somehow surviving, and no water sprites made it. Read that it might be due to low nitrates so dosed a bit of flourish nitrogen. Hopefully that’ll help.

The harlequins are such bullies. :/ This one is all bent but seems to be alright. Another has a top fin that split but it’s doing all right too. I’m convinced nothing I do can kill them.

My one surviving cory had some sort of fungus infection so I treated the tank with pimafix. Luckily, he seems a lot better now. Thank God. I wish I never got the harlequins and just stuck with a group of cories instead but gotta live with it.

I had been watering some plants directly from the tank but this time I put the old tank water in 2 water bottles after the weekly water change. That’s probably the better way.

Mom puts troubled plants outside when she doesn’t think she can save them. I kinda want to save this vine. The leaf shape is nice! I think I’ll repot them.

These little flowers have been hanging in there for a couple months now. I think maybe it’s just an outdoor plant?

The apartment above us keep s a birdfeeder or something and we constantly get seeds and bird poop on our balcony. :( And we can’t really wash and sweep either because the apartment below us gets mad at us. :/ I use a tarp to try to keep things clean when I’m planting but I think these weird sprouts must be from the bird seeds? I don’t even know what they are. They’re like weeds…

I got this orchid on clearance and put it in the greenhouse. Maybe it’ll bloom again? What will they look like? I hope to find out!

I got these asters on clearance too. (It was one pot but I split it to two.) They were past bloom so I dunno what color they are either but they’re perennial so I guess I’ll find out next fall! I read they’re supposed to be cut back to an inch or two above ground after first freeze so I’ll do that then.

I got a couple bulbs for spring planting. :3 I bought a bearded iris bulb and found it had two bulbs! Yesssss! Can’t find the tag but it’s supposed to be a light pink color. It’ll contrast with the purple crocuses. :3 Though crocus is early sping and iris is late spring. :d Still. Am super excited!

Also, the pot as full of dirt from an old plant so I dumped it to refill it and found a nest of centipedes. So gross. I must have said “So gross” 50+ times on Sunday.

Serissa cutting with oakleaf vine looks so cute! I can’t wait until it grows big and tree-like. >w

I got a balloon flower plant over the weekend. The flowers look so cute and it’s perennial! I found a self watering planter at the thrift store for a dollar so I cleaned it up and put the new balloon flower plant in it. :3 

I think I’ll name it Pops.
