Talkback: Bulb layering in a pot

Posted: 05/08/2014 at 23:16

A sink is just a big pot. Just leave the plug out for a drainage hole, and put plenty of crocks or large gravel in the bottom for drainage.

Penstemon 'Phoenix Red'

If you want the plants to be identical, split up the original clump just as it starts growing in spring. The plants will be in flower long before seedlings will.

Seedlings will have a lot of variation, not all will be as good as the parent.

Funny thing about all the little animals,most people miss them. If you sit still and just watch, you find all sorts. Same in the garden. Lots of tiny things that most people never see.

The first time  you spot a seahorses in the wild, you get really excited,then you just have to look for more incredible creatures.  Hairy ghost pipefish look just like bits of floating seaweed. Painted frogfish look like sponges.

There's a lot of weird and wonderful stuff out there.

This is the sort of stuff we will be looking for... the hidden tiny creatures that blend in so well with the background.  Concentrate or you  miss the pygmy seahorse that looks like a seafan coral.  Its only 3 mm high.

These were in Bali at Tulamben, underwater on the slope of a volcano, hence the volcanic black sand.

No I'm not in it. I'm the one behind the camera.

Yviestevie, yes I sometimes have a vivid imagination.

However in this case, I have booked to go to tasik ria resort near manado in north sulawesi, this side of Christmas..... looking for lots of critters underwater in bunaken marine park.

Not sure about the red Indian over the door. Shouldn't that be a Cornish pisky on a surf board?'
