My night blooming cereus greeted me this morning with one huge bloom – what a welcome sight after this past winter. I’ve been watching the flower bud develop for several weeks.
I purchased this orchid last summer at IKEA and after the original blooms died I began to ignore it, watering it if I remembered. Two days ago I was shocked to see it blooming!!! Maybe that’s the answer- I wonder if I can do it again?
And this succulent has grown on the windowsill from a leaf that dropped off awhile back. Now the original leaf has dried up and died but the new growth is thriving! Guess I should try to transplant it. Succulents are so amazing to grow – they tolerate neglect well.
More basketball games today and Iowa State plays tonight at 8 pm. Go Cyclones!
