Since the lockdown a month ago, I got so bored and has a conversation with my cousin Caren via messenger and we both thought about gardening. I have been helping Yeya on her vegetable garden on our rooftop while Caren has started her own pocket garden of succulents. She wanted more info on planting Peppers and I also wanted some ideas on how I can start my own collection of pocket garden plants.
So after our chat, I went to our garden and saw an old Dish Garden pot that I used from decades ago and decided to start from there. There are also a lot of untended but thriving cactus plants on our terrace garden which I thought would be a great start through re-potting.
The one on the left photo was my first dish garden that I worked on two weeks ago. That big chunk of cacti head has roots on it already and I just re-potted it here also the tall 'snowman' looking cactus at the back. But all the other small heads on the left part of the dish are made from cuttings and honestly, I don't know if they are alive.
I have re-poted the topmost and the leftmost plants and they are made up of many small plants on a cluster and using my old mugs, I placed them all one by one. But the larger aloe looking plants (please help me name these plants) have been placed on a new dish garden on the photo before this one above.
Aside from seeing these beautiful plants grow, it also makes me happy to give these old and unused mugs that we have here at home a new life! Since I can't drill holes at the bottom, I line up a third of the mugs' interior with pebbles of different sizes from an old aquarium.
HELP! Can you please help me by naming these species of cacti and succulent that I have? It will be very much appreciated!
Keep on Growing!
