Okay then, I’m sure you want to know all about what plant I ended up choosing. But before I tell you what it is, I’ll give you a hint, it’s one of the ones I listed in my last post; it has tendrils that ride up every surface and entwine like sturdy, grey trunks, and two fan-like ears to frame its broad face… Well in case the word trunk didn’t give it away already, it was elephant ivy.
Taking some clippings from a mature plant that currently resides by our elongated stairway and putting them in a jar I begin the seemingly-eternal wait for a sign that roots were breaking out before placing the clippings in a bed of soil. About a week ago however, I happened to revisit an elephant-ivy clipping specialist (some of you may be familiar with Google) whence I learned that you were in fact, not supposed to start them in water…
A well-timed cold-spell has encouraged me to focus my attention on some crocuses, so we’ll see how that goes.

Haha, I feel sorry that you waited so long for such an unsatisfying result, however its awesome that you didn’t let this small mistake weigh down on growing a new plant!Reply
