House Plant Journal...Cuttings



I am doing an experiment, and seeing if I can propagate more plants from the cuttings of some of my favorite house plants and vegetable plants. There are quite a few videos and blogs that have guided and informed me on how things should be done, so I am very excited to see how mine will turn out...
List not in any order are :Schefflera, Sweet Peppers, Bell Peppers, Spike Dracaena , Alocasia "Polly" Croton Codiaeum, and Pilea..

My Garden Update...Horn-worms Caterpillars

Manduca Sexta

Beautiful creatures... but will wreck havoc on your tomatoes, tobacco or in my case sweet banana peppers plant.
When its hot they blend in with the healthy green leaves of your plant, you begin to notice damage to your plant, quickly, around dusk or early morning...when the heat of the sun is low, that is when they come to out to eat. And eat they will do, my 3 foot healthy sweet banana plant was down to a good 2 ft. 

My pepper plant is in a 5 gallon buck, so it stands alone on my patio. What I notice was pellet poop, so I assumed it was a rabbit. 
IT look just like rabbit poop.
Then last evening to my surprise half my plant was gone, so as I looked at the plant closely, I notice something moving...BOOM!!!
there they were, 2 lovely critters eating my plant...

My Garden_Update Herbs, Cantaloupe and Green Peppers Update

Dill Plant Flowering


I have really been enjoying this summers gardening.
I have so many sweet banana peppers I don't know what to do with.
I ordered some fish fertilizer and I mix that with my compost tea, and a little dark molasses and WOWZA!!
my garden is doing  A LOT better.
I am growing some Moon and Stars Watermelon and it is a slow growing, but as soon as I fed her and the others
my special blend they begin to produce a lot more growth.
Moon & Stars


Cantaloupe



This is our biggest one so far.



Green Bill Peppers..

My Garden_Update Herbs, Cantaloupe and Sweet Banana Peppers


Moon & Stars Watermelon


I was out today, moving things around and getting rid of a few things that did not turn out so good.
Every time I am out there I see something new and exciting, today I can see the leaves on the Moon & Stars plant, showing its spots..:)
My cantaloupe is doing very well; I have also learned that not every bloom on my cantaloupe vine  is a cantaloupe, so far I only see 3...

Here is the biggest...
very early stages

                                                                         Dill Herbs
                                                                     
                                                              And My Sweet Banana Peppers

And take a look at my tiny, Green Peppers...
IN LOVE,,
