With my 3% hydrogen peroxide, my new travel-size spray bottle and my measuring spoons, I was able to make my mold-killing mixture. Huzzah.
Whilst I was spraying the surface of my terrarium — which actually started to become very dry since the mold had spread — I noticed the most peculiar sight.
On this, here, Mother’s Day weekend of ’14, I have indeed become a mother. The precious little sundews (drosera) have started to grow. One more week until the stratification of the pitcher plants is complete.
In other Mother’s Day plant news, I went over to Union Square greenmarket and went a little crazy buying some beautiful spring blooms for my mom:
Left to right, we have some beautiful Japanese Ranunculus (ranunculus kadzusensis), a deeper shade of Lilacs (syringa vulgaris), and white peonies (paeonia).
Happy Mother’s Day!
