the plants





they are all doing good. all the figue trees have many new leaves and the avocado pit is growing leaves very fast these days! when the sun shines it looks good here, but there is a lot of rain also. at this moment veronik is on a train to vienna, hopefully it's sunny over there!

Waited a long time this spring ... but it is little sad, right now!
Very beautiful and original choice of plants!

Are you growing a pilea in water next to your avocados?

mieke willems said...

hi jo, yes, those are pilea's. i wait till the roots are big enough and than i will plant them in soil.

i'm also trying to grow an avocado plant out of a pit! does the pit have to hang directly in the water? and how long did it take for you until it cracked up? :)
looks beautiful.

prachtig !

hi julia
i started with this pit in the beginning of october, so you have to be patient. i think it will go faster now that it's spring. you can search google on how to do it, there is so much written about it!

Schoon. Mijn planten doen het ook goed, maar ik ben een beetje traag met posten momenteel. Hoop dat het weer binnenkort mooier word voor de photos.
