Can’t Be Stopped

I am always fascinated with plants trying to grow no matter what situation they find themselves in.

I had thrown some Fire Spike cuttings into the composter and they managed to stretch their way to the light and find a slit to come through.

The Fire Spike has continued to grow throughout the summer.  Somehow there is enough moisture in the composter to keep it going.

All summer I have been collecting weeds in an empty fertilizer bag and threw an Air Potato Vine tuber in with the weeds.  Even the lack of soil could not stop that vine from growing.

  1. Persistence is what all life is, plants in particular.

    My own best experience with such a thing involved my first cuttings from a friend’s plumeria. I asked how to store the stems through the winter, and she said, “Just throw them under the bed, and in spring, haul them out and plant them.” I put them under the bed, and forgot about them until spring cleaning fever hit me. I looked under the bed, and there they were — happily sprouting leaves in the dark.

  3. And I can barely grow Firespike..

    Interesting post! I have a crawl space basement area that big enough to walk into some areas. It is completely dark unless I turn on a light and maybe a few light leaks around vents. Last week I found two plants growing in the dark under the stairs! I thought this would be impossible!!!
