I’m constantly amazed by what plants will do the survive (at least some of them). If you remember, I purchased some lovely succulents earlier this spring. Whenever I notice that a leaf has fallen off a succulent, I often try to root it. When my ‘Black Knight’ lost a few leaves I scooped them up and brought them in the house. With all that is going on here, I completely forgot about them.
I was just telling Mr Chiots last week that I remember gathering these leaves but I had no idea where they’d ended up. A few days later, I discovered them in a drawer. Amazingly, they had sprouted roots and leaves.
A tiny pot was filled with potting soil and I laid the little plants on top. Hopefully they’ll root and I’ll end up with a nice collection of these beauties! The wonder of plants will never cease to amaze me. We certainly can learn a lot about tenaciousness from our gardens!
