And Now For My Next Trick…..
I obtained a schefflera plant in about 2004….it was in pretty good shape… grew one tiny little sprout every season. Then I moved it in the winter of 2011, all the leaves fell off, and then somehow it’s stem got broken. I was pretty much just waiting for a good time to toss it.
Then it grew leaves. The part of the stem that had broken off, I just stuck in the soil, and then it grew leaves! And it was growing lots of leaves.
It has pretty much quadrupled in size. So this last spring, I cut a snip off, and set it in water to root. Nothing happened. I left it in the garage. I cut another snip, put it in water on the window sill, and just now it is starting to root. Feeling quite pleased, I decided to check on the one in the garage… it has roots like a spider plant! Very exciting.
So if you are looking for houseplants, I do occasionally have potted plants started, that are available for sale.
