Planting this plant: How?
posted by Marky to home & garden (7 answers total)
My mom picked this piece of a plant in January, brought it home, and stuck it in a glass of water, telling me she could plant it later. I thought she was nuts, but look; 3 months later, roots and blossoms!
So now what?
I don't know anything about this plant
, except it was planted outside, and lived through a New York winter. I picked up a bag of "Cactus soil", mainly because it was on sale.
So questions: What is this? It's got microscopic thorns. Do I just stick it in a pot of the Cactus soil and leave it? Can I bury it deeper in the soil, or do I need some sort of support? Or just clear a spot in the yard and drop it in?
