The Great Quaking Ornamental Grass I planted from seeds have produced seedheads
Before going to bed, I got the urge to do some planting… so, I:
1. I repotted the 2 small pots of Great Quaking Ornamental Grass into larger pots.
2. I repotted the Zygocactus cutting which have sprouted new leaves/stems into a larger pot.
I’m still disappointed by the sad looking Tomato, Eggplant, etc. seedlings, so I thought I would try an experiment. I wondered how the tomatoes would do if I took cuttings of them.
I cut them down, dipped the bottom ends into rooting hormone and planted them into a half potting soil/half perlite mixture. About 2 inches of the stems were placed in the soil. I then watered and covered them with a cut up plastic water bottle to act as a mini greenhouse.

I collected the Carex seeds back in the Summer 2005 and they grew! I have to sow more for my friend who helped me collect them. Here are links to photos of the Carex seeds when I found them: photo 1, photo 2
