more planting trials

My first few attempts were in vain though. The plants died after three months much to my disappointment. How ignorant I was back then! I didn’t even asks my co-teachers how many times a week should I water it and where should it be placed. Few weeks have passed and this is now what my plant looks.

This is now my second attempt to propagate a euphorbia plant. Just in time for my plant dissection handbook, I will be able to use it as well during my dissections. Now I have a lot of questions in mind to ask the seller of euphorbia plants in our weekly “tiange”.

1. What is the breed of this euphorbia plant? Its imported she said…
2. Every when should I water it? Every week she answered…
3. Do I need to apply fertilizers on it? Yes, monthly would do. Do not overdo it…
4. Where should I place my plant? Near well lighted places.
5. Can I took it out of the soil then bring it back after my examination? Yes but do not water it right away. Wait for 2 days after then water it.
6. Why? So that the plant can adopt to a new soil and it would not drowned.
7. How much is it? Only 25 pesos. Different varieties are more expensive because of the petals.
8. Can I propagate it? Yes, one tip from me, choose the plants which has plenty of stems. You can cut these off later and plant, thus increasing your collection.

Isn’t it great? Now I’m caught in the euphorbia fever too!
