Plant Parenthood, continued
Posted by Daricia McKnight
Some cuttings I'm nurturing along right now are several types of coleus, an alternanthera (purple-y plant, far right) and porterweed (Stachytarpheta jamaicensis). These plants are all tender perennials which will need to be kept inside for the winter. Until they root, I've been keeping them in a partially unzipped ziplock bag most of the time. Sometimes I talk some CO2 into the bags to encourage them.
If all goes well, I will have colorful plants in my south-facing windows this winter ---
and this scene in my garden next summer!
You can find this pretty display at the McMillan Greenhouse.
