Aw, man, haha. They loved the plant so much they used it all in one go. Luckily, mine won't have access to the plant. We'll see if they go stir crazy trying to get to it as it grows. There is a small landing outside the enclosed porch door in front of the stairs going down. That is where all my plants are kept. They don't try to run out the door, although the kittens are curious when I go to check on all my veggie pots. Katrina will stand on the railing closest to me and meow through the screen, and Persia will stare at me curiously through the glass door of the enclosed deck. They scatter and more back when I enter back into the enclosed porch from the landing. If they start getting excited and try to access the plant, I will move the pot somewhere else.I bought a catnip plant this year. It was beautiful when I brought it home, with loads of little purple and white flowers. Well, that cats started rolling and drooling all over it before I even got it in the ground. After 24 hours the poor thing was so shredded I decided to dig him up and put him in a pot in the bathroom to recover. He started to grow some new shoots, but than one of the cats got in there and ripped them all off again. It was tragic to see. I've buried his remains out back now.
Unless rolled in, bitten and drooled all over.
What a beautiful kitty!
So cute! Thank you for sharing!!! Love those cat planters <3 And your cacti are really unique! Some of them look like Christmas trees because of their shape, and the one on the left in the middle... are those babies growing in a circular form or is that just how it grows? (Is that one of those boob cacti on the right middle...?) You're succulents look very happy, too. Do you keep them outside?
I just started transitioning mine to move them outdoors. I look forward to seeing how they grow differently outside, especially since some change colors when in enough sun. They were out 45 minutes today in the shade. I will keep gradually increasing the amount until I may leave them out, until it gets too cold.
How neat! Do you know about letting the cut top callous over before replanting? For the bottom part if you leave it, it may sprout babies! I've seen pictures of new growth from old stems people have left (they even water it still!) and less than a month to 2 months later new growth appears! So I'd recommend leaving it and seeing what happens. You'll have to update when and if new growth appears!This is the one I'm thinking of cutting the top off. What should I do with the stem? If I leave it in the pot will it keep growing? As you can see there are a couple of little babies growing from the leaves that dropped off.
Those babies in there are too cute!
What houseplants did you repot?Took out my mustard in the vegetable garden day before yesterday since it was bolting and planted my serrano peppers in it's place. Yesterday before the rain hit, I got all of my large houseplants repotted. Since they are in 12 to 18 inch pots, it is no easy thing to do. I also repotted some of my seedling herbs into bigger pots and planted a tall butterfly weed for the butterflies in the yard. I want to work some more on removing the junipers, but it is going to be to hot and humid today. I will find something inside to do.
Wow, what a unique life cycle. Can you imagine having a life like that?The beautiful pale green adult luna moths live for only a week.They don't have a mouth, cannot eat, only mate, lay eggs, and die.
