I received a white Plumeria from this lady, who rocks. She let me know that if I didn’t transplant it to a bigger container soon she might beat me with a wooden spoon. Nice Lady? You bet!
This is how my Hot Lips Salvia and Impatiens have grown so big and strong since we planted them in the spring. An egg.
I have heard that there are many skeptics to the power of the EGG.
In my family, we do experiments. Why? Because we grew up with our Mom as a science teacher and it is just how we roll. If C ever does another science fair I will try to convince her to do this experiment rather than the effect of music on plant growth [that really happened]. Let me just show you what I know to be the difference:
You see these two VERY different groups of baby plumerias? One is with egg and one is without, can you guess which is which?
The plumerias without eggs are so puny compared to the suped-up egg plumerias. There is SUCH a big difference, I can’t believe there a nay-sayers.
Anyways, back to my plumeria, here she is but I don’t know why she insists on being crooked… I guess it’s the cool thing to do now.
This guy helped with the picture taking, as you may be able to tell. I’m allergic to stinkin’ cats and their stinkin’ dander, however, they are so cute and want me to pet them all the time. So I just talk to them like the crazy cat lady when they do come around.
Do you have any interesting gardening tips that you though would never work? Have you tried the whole egg under the roots thing? I would love to hear from you about any and all gardening trials and tribulations… My thumb is slowly turning from black to green, YAY!
