Garden Adventures | August 2019

Gardening

It has been sometime since I last updated everyone on my indoor and outdoor gardens. I decided that I would take a little time today and share the victories and pitfalls I have had over the last few months.


-Pitfalls-

Sadly my moon valley and pothos did not do well at all. My pothos did some to me ill with something and I did my best to care for it and reverse the damage. Sadly, the spots on the leaves slowly took over the plant to a point it was no longer able to properly photosynthesize. My moon valley also did not do well at all. It was getting burned where I was keeping it and then it was starting to get very floppy so it wasn’t getting enough sunlight. This went back and forth for about 2 months until it finally died. I am really upset about this, but it seems like I do not have the proper environment for this plant.

My ZZ plant has a new very large stem on it! It was so much fun watching it grow and slowly unravel each and every day for about a week and a half two weeks. It is going very well as of late, even though I have had to cut off two older stems that were starting to yellow and wither.

One of my outside, nameless succulents, has been doing amazing! It has flowered a few times and grown tremendously. I was able to catch a bug hanging out in the flower as well. Not sure if it is a bee or not, because it was loving the pollen inside.

My air plant continues to thrive and do wonderful. It has slowly, but steadily growing. In this picture it is in need of a soak. It gets even fuller when it has been watered.

This year my tomato plants are going wonderful! Last year I struggled quite a bit, but this year they are doing better than I thought they would. I have a study supply of these yummy bite sized fruits this year and I have been eating them in salads.

Now, this last one I am worried about. I feel like I have a bit of a spider mite issue. It looks like my main plant is getting eaten by something, but I have this new little plant growing at the same time. As of writing this I am looking up ways to try and beat them. If you have any suggestions let me know I don’t want anything happening to this beautiful snake plant.


Do you have a vegetable or fruit garden this summer?

  1. This is so awesome! Currently I have three snake plants (2 of them babies). Super proud of myself with those. I also tried to grow a jalapeño plant, but my cat saw the little sprouts and thought they were toys, so that’s gone now lol.
