Plant life

by Sofia

Yesterday I discovered that my thick, waxy plant was assailed by tiny yellow aphids. I cut off the two baby stems they were feeding on and put the vermin in the trashcan. :(

On the other hand, some weeks ago I plucked off a stem from Annick’s pothos and put it in water to sprout roots. Yesterday I potted it in a tin can that I modified with a kitchen knife. If it continues to look cheerful, it means it took root successfully and is on its way to becoming a large, elegant, draping plant. :)

Lastly, I look forward to moving into my next permanent place and starting a vermicompost.
