For this week’s challenge let’s take a peek inside the Ranchero!
First up is Selenicereus Pteranthus, a climbing cactus I posted about last September. When we were in Key West last month, I snagged a few new cuttings. I think one might be rooting already: 🙂 yesterday I noticed new stem growth which is a wicked good sign!
Look closer and you’ll see a ridge connecting the cactus’s old and new parts. FYI, this is the plant’s vascular bundle, hard at work inside the raised area.
The Cosmos from my rear cutting garden have re-seeded inside the Ranchero. Unfortunately, these ain’t your nice, run-of-the-mill cosmos, but super-sized monsters whose mission is to obscure everything in sight! 😉 If you squint, you might catch sight of a madagascar palm inside all that foliage!
Squint a little harder and you’ll see a tiny lizard inside cosmos jungle! 🙂
Actually, the Ranchero is always teeming with lizards! Here’s one inside a tangle of prickly pear.
Last winter I planted a Frangipani cutting and it’s more than doubled in size these past 6 months! No blooms yet, but look at the healthy offshoot and leaves!
….and THIS one surprised the you-know-what out of me! I think some foxglove seeds I planted three years ago have finally made an appearance!
Way back when the seeds didn’t sprout, I pushed a bunch of little calladium bulbs into their container. With the bulbs in dormancy, could the old seeds have worked their way to the top? Is that even possible?
You never know what you’ll find when you look inside!
Until next time!
