Out on the Limb

Gasteria

Wednesday, April 27, 2005


When we moved to our home in 1989, I bought a tiny Gasteria plant as a housewarming gift to myself. Last year, Gasteria suffered a near-death experience from too much lovin. The culprit?...excessive H2O. The root system rotted.

Isn't it interesting that the plant thrived until we come to the time in our life to move from this place we have called home for almost 16 years?

When I lifted Gasteria from her own earthen home, I discovered a couple of tiny shreds of new-life roots. I have re-planted those roots, and Gasteria is resting on my kitchen windowsill.

I hope she makes it.

I'll put the planter up for sale at a sister site to "Out on the Limb" after graduation ceremonies in June. Pretty much...everything is on hold until then.

Yep, I once succeded in killing one of my plant through excessive watering. I didn't know that we shouldn't water plants often and just thought that plants thrive as often as i water. Since then learned my lesson.
