Green Thumb Sunday – Spring and planting

Yesterday, I posted crocus buds, today this blossom…I took this the same day with the buds…was the first to open up.

I went to the Garden supplies shop some time last month to buy some soil and also additional pots. I bought a plant with many off shoots from a nearby grocery store (yes, they sell plants too lol). So I decided to divide the off shoots and that’s why there’s the need to buy soil and pots =).

The smallest sack available were 20L, I took one and there still remains much soil until now.

While looking for a pot I saw these! Well, just inside the shop and none in the streets yet, only the crocuses are really visible.

Here’s one of the many off shoots of the bigger plant, which name unfortunately run off from my memory (again!). Waaaahhh!

Happy GTS everyone!

  1. Hi Gizelle,
    The last plant looks like a ZZ plant, or Zamioculcas zamiifolia. It has an underground tuber that allows it to go months without water. I’ve had a couple of these–the foliage is beautiful–but be careful of overwatering. I learned the hard way!
    Happy GTS,
    Aiyana

  2. Hi Aiyana, from the label it says Timbuktu plant! Lol, I just forgot what is the other name but yes they have tubers…Now thanks for the tip, I was actually wondering why it seems to look ok even though I haven’t put much water unlike my bonsai which is so hungry with water =D Have a happy week! Thanks again!

  3. Wow! those are beautiful 🙂 I can’t wait until if feels more like Spring here. It’s still quite cold. Thanks so much for giving me a little glimpse of Spring online 🙂
