Some of the Kangkong (Water Spinach) ( photos from 3 days ago ) that I placed in water have already started to sprout some roots.
I’m looking online to see how to plant them, since they are aquatic plants. I read somewhere that they can be planted in soil, but they are tougher and stouter than if they were floating in water. We don’t have a pond and I don’t really want to leave them in a body of water, because of the fear of mosquitoes. Maybe I can plant them in gravel like Lucky Bamboo or maybe in a hole-less pot with bog soil. Hmmm?
I also noticed that something chewed on one of my baby Kongs (the velvety red one) ( photo from 4 days ago ) and knocked it down. I think it’s time for Sluggo. I cut the fallen tips and rooted it.
The same thing happened to a branch of my Coleus ‘Kiwi Fern‘ a few days ago. Surprisingly, the cutting already has root, so I potted it up in soil.
I also spy the smallest baby Lemon Cucumber… Yeay!
