Just to update on this -- I had moved the pot inside to just inside the kitchen ranchslider, and the dill completely took over the pot and shot up to two meters tall, so I moved the pot to an outside corner of the garden.

The parsley has a couple of leaves sticking out here and there, but is otherwise buried under lots and lots of dill.

The chives might be there. I have no idea whatsoever. If they are, they're buried under dill too.

No, I didn't think to take any. After I moved the pot outside, I found that the dill had also carpetbombed the vinyl around it in the kitchen with pollen.

I already mentioned it in the chat but the building is being renovated which is estimated to take about a year and I had to clear out my balcony. Rolling Eyes
I managed to move the plants (and bees) to my parents so I might still post some photos and since they are getting more light they might do better too.

I did notice that there is something sprouting in the container with the Aquilegia (columbine). It did have an Aconitum (monkshood) in it but that one died
pretty quickly, or did it ? Whatever is sprouting does look a bit like it but I find it hard to imagine that it actually survived. Would be great if it did but we'll
see.

no, never got any comments on it. There is of course a wall between me and my neighbour
and on the other side is the corner apartment which doesn't have the balcony on the backside.

I hope for you that they improve some things that matter to you.

Take heart, once they are finished, you can restore the beautiful garden you had before and probably then some knowing you.

I just noticed this: happy smoker won't be growing that anymore.

I have 14 pepper seedlings still in 7 peat moss pots, but doing well. I may try to knife cut those in half and plant all 14. Technically, I know that I should just sacrifice the weaker one in each pot, but I hate doing that.

I got my tomato seeds sprouted. 3 plants out of 4 seeds each in it's own tiny peat moss pot. They are a hybrid that are the size of a cherry tomato, but more pest and disease resistant. I ordered 3 more big plastic pots for plants.

I've found I can grow decent vegetables in pots and weeds are a minor thing. My yard is otherwise more weeds than grass. It's green, but don't try to clear a spot and plant stuff. The weeds move in quickly and choke everything. Desert stuff tends to be aggressive. I do like seeing the praying mantises though. If I can get a photo of one, I will certainly post it here.

Thanks Scott Smile

I don't think there will be any improvements for me though, quite the opposite actually but I don't really have a choice in the matter (unless I finally move out).


I also hate discarding weaker plants, I'd feel bad for them once they have sprouted but I am probably anthrophomorphizing them too much.
A raised bed might work in your case to keep the weeds out a bit but it is of course extra work. Pots have their advantages and as long as you
choose them big enough they function just as well and might even be better for annual plants. They could dry out a bit quicker but that can also
be an advantage. At least peppers prefer some dry soil with an occasional good soak.

I'd love to see some praying mantis pics. I don't think we have them in the wild over here unless they escaped from somewhere. Actually I don't
think I ever saw one IRL, maybe they have them at a specialized pet store.

There is actually something I am growing this year, apart from the plants that I moved to my parents. It's a bit of an experiment and I have no idea
if it will be succesful but I planted 20 of the bulbils from the Tiger Lily to see if they would do something. I am not exactly sure when I put them in the
ground but probably about a month ago. I put them on the window sill in my bedroom which gets the most light at the moment and I noticed 2 of them
had sprouted. On closer inspection there are actually already 14 sprouting but most are still very small. I don't think they produce any flowers in the first
year just a bit of foliage and mostly roots to feed the bulb.

The main bulb itself was dug up and placed in a smaller container inside just like last year and when I dug it up I noticed it had split. I had a look at it
today to see how it is doing but instead of producing a lot of roots, which it did last year, it has already started producing 2 stalks one of which was starting
to breach the surface. It's probably due to the very mild winter, if you can even call it that. So I placed it back in its original pot so it has more room to
grow. I'll keep it inside for now but I'll have to move it to my parents when it starts to get above the surface otherwise it won't get enough light.
Btw. I generally don't have any heating on so it's not particularly warm inside (about 13C at the moment).

I had another look at it and made a photo to compare it to how it looked last year and I am 99,9999999% sure now it is indeed the Aconitum. Shocked
No idea how it actually survived or rather why it completely died of above ground last year but I guess life, uh, finds a way.

The Aquilegia that's sharing the pot with the Aconitum is also still alive and showing some new growth. Apparently I never took any photos of the Atropa belladonna
plants last year but they are still alive. They didn't get a lot of light last year and didn't grow much but they will get plenty of light this year. I've tried to grow them
a couple of times over the last 15 years or so without success and now I even have 2 rare varieties. Note that the ones in the smaller pots were actually backup plants
but I guess I now just have 6 plants (and they can get big if you give them enough space).

The pulmonaria is already starting to form flower buds Shocked It didn't do great last year (but had a lot of flowers) probably because it shared its rather small
container with the large Solanum dulcamara. However, because I had to move them I had to transplant them to a different container so I could put the trellis
in it too (originally that was placed in the large black container next to it). They're still together but have a lot more space now and will also get more light so ehm,
something might get BIG.

Also the Viola odorata is already flowering, it's always early but now even more so with these mild temperatures.

Dieffenbachia

Last year I got a Dieffenbachia (dumb cane) for inside. It was in the section with the small plants but they can actually get pretty big.
here's a photo for reference how it looked when I just got it.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.
Dieffenbachia on the left with the large variegated leaves

It has grown a bit and produced some new shoots, one of them being rather large so I decided to plant that one in a seperate pot.
I also removed 2 other shoots and put those in a sperate pot as well. so now I have 3 pots with Dieffenbachia(s ?). When I have a
couple of the same plants I always like to use the same pots for them. I looked at what pots I had and found a set of 3 with a good
size. They are only slightly larger than the pot it was in but it wasn't really rootbound so that should be ok. I covered the drainage
holes with some plastic mesh and added a small layer of clay pellets for improved drainage. One of the shoots came of without roots
but they should be easy to root although it might drop some leaves.

Now that I finally have some belladonna plants there is another witches' plant I'd really like to add to the collection; Mandragora (mandrake).
However the seeds are not very easy to obtain (although not too hard to find either), usually sold in low quantities and somewhat expensive.
They're also not very easy to germinate so with only a few seeds the chance of success is rather slim. I got curious if I could find some seeds
for a reasonable price at some dutch online shops and looked around a bit. I did find some but as expected in low quanitites and/or a bit too
expensive.

Another place to look for seeds is ebay but you have to be careful. There are a lot of fake seeds sold, especially from china. Some are easy to
spot because they sell seeds for flowers in all kinds of odd color combinations. One you see often is the rainbow colored rose, which does exist
but is artificially created (some photos are definitely fake though). Searching for rainbow seeds gives a lot of silly examples.
There are also a lot of genuine seed sellers on ebay, generally just avoid china and check what else they sell as the good ones are usually
specialized in seeds and plants only. You can also check the feedback and how long a seller has been around.

After some searching I came accross a seller from spain who offered 30 seeds for only $1.65. Shipping was $2.17 but ordering more seeds
didn't add any additional costs so I was curious if they sold something else I'd be interested in. For some reason the ebay shop didn't show
any items for me although there should be 1377 according to ebay but after a quick google search I found a website from the same seller.
I had a look around and although I didn't see much that I was interested in I did find Hyoscyamus albus which is white henbane. I'm only familiar
with (and have grown) Hyoscyamus niger which is black henbane. By searching for Hyoscyamus albus on ebay I managed to find a listing from the
same seller so I ordered those as well. That was last thursday and they arrived today Razz .

The seeds need cold stratification (just like the belladonna seeds) but since I have 30 of them and only have space for 1 plant I can do some
experiments. So I think I will sow some directly in the ground, put some in the fridge and keep some for next year just in case. The henbane
came in a package of 500 seeds but I probably save those for next year since it is an annual and I can't really grow anything right now.

Something I haven't shown before are my 3 balls. They are Marimo moss balls which I bought of ebay a couple years ago from a UK seller.
Although generally referred to as moss balls they are actually an algae and in nature they get their spherical shape by rolling around due to
water currents. The ones you buy are usually hand formed though and I think it is actually illegal to collect them from the wild or at least in
some parts of the world.

I keep them in a fishbowl with some marbles (both found at a thrift store) and they are very easy to take care of. They only require some sunlight
and of course water which you need to refresh once every other week. You could add some special fertilizer but that shouldn't be needed. However,
they also have to be moved around a bit otherwise they will just flatten out over time. Although you can move them by hand I opted for an air pump,
which I already had anyway. It is rather noisy though so I don't have it on very often but I did order a new pump a couple days ago which is supposed
to be very quiet. The air pump is connected to a (star shaped) air stone which produces a lot of bubbles that the balls seem to enjoy riding (I hope).
This also adds some extra CO2 and as a bonus it works a bit as a humidifier for other plants.

Nice balls! Shocked Razz

Good to see you're still able to do plants. Horticulture is anxiety alleviating.

No pictures yet, not much to see, they're just tiny pepper and tomato seedlings. Hard to tell those apart so I have the containers marked. Some of the peppers are starting to get secondary leaves. I have 3 pretty equal looking tomato seedlings each in small square peat-moss pots. The pots can be separated, so I think I will try to plant one outside in the pot from last year that still has a petroleum jelly band around it (repels earwigs). It's long past a point where it could freeze, night temperatures have been 45F (7.2C) or higher. That way, I don't have to carry trays of seedlings in and out of the house. Not enough south facing windows to just grow them inside until they're too big. I'm hoping that growing the tomato in a pot restricts it's size. I'll still probably have to trim it. The problem with trimming is it's pretty difficult to cut a piece off that doesn't have flowers or even green fruit on it. It's like thinning seedlings - which I will do or I will have too many plants.
