We're in the Money!

One of the first projects Tim took on early this month was transplanting the money tree plant he'd kept in his office for over 12 years into a new, bigger planter that would now live at home. We left off hopeful, and looking a little something like this...

We'd lost some roots during the transfer and those spotty yellow leaves you see on the plant front and center didn't make it — so we weren't completely sure how the fate of the plant would turn out. With a little time and patience to let it get used to its new home, one morning we came downstairs to see this little guy sprouting from the top of the plant:

It's quite literally a new little handful of leaves emerging. There's one on the other side of the plant too:

We're taking the new growth as a signal that the plant is probably taking root nicely within the planter and directing new energy into the main plant.

So far so good!

  2. I have the same angst about anything to do with plants. A co-worker snipped a few pieces from his ivy plant for me a while ago. It's since grown roots in a cup of water. I think it's high time to move it into a proper planter with soil!
