First rain of 2019. Light showers early evening. Knew it was unwise to take the car to a car wash this morning!!

Been a while since I twittered like a Canary. Thought I'd post an update on my Cyperus alternifolius.

At the end iof last year I detached a few if the plantlets from the top and stood them in water to root About a month later I potted them up with very uneven results. Growth struggled thereafter as my 'salty' water puts too much saline in the compost. Got better growth when I used the low sodium drinking water (equivalent to 70 pence for an 8 litre container).

Update on my Cyperus alternifolius.

The plantlet placed in the ramekin was transferred next to the original cyperus that still stubbornly refused to divide but was still growing new plantlets from the top. These were detached and rooted in water.
