There was a lot of snake plants of various sizes. There were ferns and other green foliage plants. Some orchids but none had any interesting color or pattern. I guess spring and summer is the best time for flowering and interesting plants.
The supermarket was the same they had some orchids but nothing interesting. They didn't look healthy either. That is probably normal for a supermarket, they only look healthy if it is a fresh shipment. I am assuming that wholesalers have greenhouses so there really wouldn't be a season, they could create whatever season they wanted. I was thinking maybe they are holding back their really nice ones until December for the holidays.

My Pilea is starting to show signs of heat / light stress. The leaves are cupping. My bedroom isn't getting over 75F now and the plant cart is far enough from the window and direct sunlight :headscratch: I've moved the Pilea to the kitchen counter for now. Hopefully Leroy will leave it alone :paranoid: The pot doesn't fit in the space on top of the fridge in front of the cabinet door.

Norachan Norachan Love how the jellybean (?) looks in the planter. Very natural looking! I bought some cement planters on sale, although do not look as natural. Drilled holes a few weeks ago and not sure what to put in them yet.
Those must be the little bitty cactus babies?? :cutecat: So cute! And I see a dinosaur planter!!!!!! :heartshape:

The Pilea seems to be doing better on the counter. It's cooler there than in the bedroom. But it's also dark this time of year. Any recommendations for a small tabletop plant grow lamp? Not a clip on-type lamp.

Yes, the little babies came from this one.

I took three off and left three on the mother cacti. They've all put down roots, but they haven't got much bigger yet.

I'm planning to go back to the garden center I found the dinosaur at to check if they have any others. I wouldn't want him to get lonely.

I have been at the store again, is there such a thing as orchid fever. This one is in moss rather then bark chips so I will have to be careful with watering. I have a bag of mixed bark and coconut chips but it is flowering so I will leave well enough alone. The roots look healthy and there was no water sitting in the bottom of the decorative pot.

The second picture is something stuck in with the orchid. It has it's own separate root ball with a loose soil and wrapped in some kind of paper. I am sure it isn't supposed to be planted in bark chips and/or moss but I have no idea what it is or what to do with it.

Few updates


Never chopped the top off of this one that had a bad stem. Seems to be growing roots... maybe it will be okay?

This one is still growing a lot!

This one has been growing A Lot. Lots of aerial roots... but it doesn't seem thirsty but maybe it is because of the aerial roots?

My crassula was growing pretty leggy... Looks kinda funny. The one to the left is very sad with down turned leaves and wants more light.
20201122_152011.jpg






This one is getting crazy tall and big... especially because the growth is more leggy due to wanting more light! But it is growing past the growth light, which isn't going to help it get more light, oof.

Any thoughts on this or other similar plant lamps? My kitchen counter is too dark this time of year for the Pilea. The coffee table gets a bit more light but I worry about Leroy's munchies :paranoid: He hasn't bothered the plant on the counter so far :crossfingers:

https://www.amazon.com/Aceple-Flexible-Gooseneck-Hydroponic-Greenhouse/dp/B01CE7CTGY
https://www.amazon.com/OLEDA-Gooseneck-Grow-Light-Plant/

I can clip a lamp to the underside of my upper kitchen cabinet. Hopefully a clip is strong enough to hold the lamp upside down.

Or would it be better to use a plant grow bulb in a regular small desktop / clip on lamp?

They all look very plump and healthy W WillowMarie

I started looking at lamps too LTS3 LTS3 but I got confused by all the different styles. When I used to work in a big inner-city school we had some huge yucca and cheese plants that just survived on the fluorescent strip lights they had switched on in the school for 12 hours a day. (No windows or natural daylight in that part of the building)

The ones I've looked at are LED type lights with red and blue bulbs. But none look like they have bulbs that can be replaced. Might be better just buying a small lamp and a plant grow light bulb for it.

Remember last year we discussed how the Christmas Cactus might actually be a Thanksgiving Cactus. Well, even though Canada celebrated Thanksgiving back in October, it appears my two plants think they need to recognize the US Thanksgiving. ;)
