#PurpleHeart Discussion

I was totally over watering this guy. This plant actually borderlines being a succulent. I finally got him on the right track.

#purpleheart Happy Thursday plant friends πŸ’š Just noticed a lil flower on my Luna 😍 Picked this plant up a while back off eBay She's doing great @JesssJungle Shame these flowers don't last long isn't it?

LATE UPDATE** I had asked for some advice on how to repot this Purple heart I was gifted, I gave some thoughts to the comments on my other post (thank you to those who commented) and decided after some research that best course of action was to replant her in soil, I'm hoping she does well in the pot I got her for now :) #newplantmom #purpleheart

How do I repot this??

Too tall and falls over 😱

Purple heart doesn't make roots

These blooms only last a day, but they're so pretty. πŸ©·πŸ’œ The purple heart is a member of the tradescantia family. #happyplants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #blooming #flower #theamigos #tradescantia #purpleheart #porchplants #outdoorgrowing #plantaddict #plantmafia #planttherapy

I am new to growing. First question? What do they mean fertilize 56 mg today. So, I need English lol. And what type. Are all fertilizers the same or does each plant need a different one?

@SUNSHiNEPLANTS Here’s Gill’s journey.

My lovely Trad "pale puma" (which is a hybrid, somewhere between a Pallida and a Sillamontana), Ghost got a LONG overdue haircut this morning! (in between me swatting up on plant lights, PPFD and DLI! πŸ€“), but as she has really CHUNKY stems I had to look for a different solution than my usual prop jar... Enter, my alcohol miniatures! 🀣 I saved the Ophir Gin bottles coz they were pretty and they've just been collecting dust for ages... I felt inspired! Lol the others were left over from a party LOOOONG ago! Lol, the next day I'd decanted the (tiny bits of) remaining spirits into these plain glass bottles rather than keep the full sized ones (& just Sharpied the lids, to know what was what lol)... But it still wasn't enough! so, being a hoarder who doesn't throw sh*t away I remembered I had empty spice and herb jars! PERFECTION!! for a skinnier stemmed plant I would've left the plastic "sprinkle" tops on. As the spice jars have only four holes, which would nicely hold four skinny stems.... As Ghost is a chunky girl I took them off but it made me wonder... What innovative prop jars do the #greggang use? I'm sure not everyone has bought proper ones so show me your goodies! 😜🀣 I'm always looking for new ways to reuse household items! #propegation #tradescantia #ReuseAndRelove! EDIT: these bottles were thoroughly cleaned AND sterilised before I used them this way! Lol πŸ˜‚ EDIT 2: please forgive the filthy windows & surrounds!! 🫣 I've not got to that part of my "spring" cleaning yet! Hahaha 🀣 x
