Little Tree, Big World

The pine tree seeds sprouted! And they did so earlier than the little "instruction" card said they would. Three to four weeks?? Not in my name! They sprouted in about 14 days! It makes me feel like a proud papa. Take a look:

Elsewhere in my indoor garden I have been tinkering away and added a new plant shelf. I am continuously working on achieving my goal of turning my living space into an indoor jungle of sorts. Just recently has it really started to give off that jungle feeling. Here's one more piece to my plant-room puzzle.

The plant on the left actually started from just one small cutting. It's doing so well and I've already started another plant from this one. I believe it is in the wandering-jew family, though I have yet to find the exact variety. It has a purple underleaf and is rather fuzzy. Anyone know this one?


  1. Hi,
    the sprouts! How cool is that!
    Also cool that you got the other plant to grow from a small cutting!
    I am not sure what it is, but it looks very happy!
    I love your title. That is so wonderful.

  2. Thats so amazing ! I can just imagine how excited you are feeling about it right now. Way to go!
    ( I love Pine trees. Especially because they dont grow here in tropical Mumbai so they're very, very exotic for me)
