Sticky Fingers

Saturday, August 12, 2006

This Parodia fell off its (lack of) roots today when I was looking under the pot to see if anything (like healthy roots) was growing there. Scared me when it happened because it was the last thing I'd have expected.

So I looked up inside it and saw a hole going up the centre but the body of the plant is still firm and green and it's even still growing at the tip.

I hope it will be okay - I need to put it aside and wait for some roots to appear again while I take precautions to prevent further deterioration/decay.

It's a pity this had to happen just when it seemed that all my plants were doing well, with Echinopsis and Gymno and Mammillaria blooming all over.
