Growing in Darkness

Once my composter was emptied, I started refilling it with plant material I had cut back.  A few days later when I was adding more,  I found Cannas were continuing to bloom in the darkness.

    Haha. I once had a sprig of a native groundcover Heartleaf skullcap, Scutellaria ovata, grow inside the pedestal of a bird bath. It lasted the who season. Silly plants!

    When I got my first plumeria cuttings from a friend, she told me to throw them under the bed for the winter. One day in early spring, I was looking for a box of photos I keep under there, and there were the plumeria, happily sprouting.

    parts of vegetables will do that too. Ours is exposed, so onions and potatoes grow in it.
