I definitely have no shortage of chia seedlings at the moment. The entire surface of the soil in the milk jug is a carpet of green!
The three or four seed bombs for the wildflowers that I saw roots or sprouts in were put into another milk jug and they're starting to come up too. I have no idea what kinds of flowers these will be as I used two different mixes of seeds and there's 26 possible varieties in one mix, and 17 possible varieties in the other. A couple varieties overlap, but there's still a lot of possibilities. I have no idea what to expect with this lot. I'm sure they'll get too big in the milk jug and will likely die off before spring when I can put them outside in the soil. Oh well. At least I'm giving them a shot, right?
I continue to be impressed by the goji berry stems. The leaves are coming in quickly!
I'm also thoroughly impressed with #3's spider plant. I picked this plant up at a local seed swap - someone had planted it in a little plastic picnic cup and didn't want it. I took two - one I gave to the neighbor (I think it died), and the other I gave to #3. I had just bought one for myself in the store. Mine was quite a bit larger than this one, I have mine planted in a hanging basket in the livingroom window and it's doing well. This one however, is now taller and has wider leaves than mine! Mine has more leaves, but it looks more like a small unkempt bush. This one is looking fantastic! It could really use a bigger container now. I think #3 wants to scour her grandpa's garage for a hanging basket so hers can be in the window with mine. It's not root-bound, so I'm not in a big hurry. It's a very nice looking spider plant though.
