@PlantyPlanter @ABCD
#SolomonSealClub #SolomonSeal UPDATE?!?!

This looks hopeful!!
YAY!
That’s a ss rhizome right?
I cleaned it up and went searching for rhizomes. When I thought they had been eaten by bugs, I then saw signs of hopeful growth!!
@PlantyPlanter yes! The one from Etsy.

οΏΌ I found a bunch of ants - οΏΌa BUNCH - And I was worried that they ate the rhizome.

I wonder if ants eat the rhizomes? @ABCD οΏΌοΏΌ
It doesn’t look helpful at all.
Those tiny little sprouts! Look at them go! 🌱😊
@PrudentSalsa I think you mean, hopeful? Also, that is really unnecessary. Is are happinesses really upsetting you that badly?
@sarahsalith I would be shocked if they were eaten, we have a bunch of ants at my house and the Solomon seal are fine
@PlantyPlanter I need to find SS ASAP! Y’all make it so fun! Guide me where to possibly buy these babies! 🌿 @sarahsalith
@kscape omg I would gladly! I’ll send you some places to by them, there was a separate company that sold SS so maybe that would be better!
@kscape do you want both kinds? Or one of them? If so which one?
@sarahsalith are you looking for more rhizomes?
@kscape Polygonatum odoratum 'Variegatum' (Variegated Solomons Seal) Perennial, white flowers, 1 - Size Container https://a.co/gczjjc2
@kscape https://www.etsy.com/listing/1025632364/ this is just the rhizome though
@PlantyPlanter I don’t know much about them so direct to me to where you think is best! 😊πŸͺ΄
@kscape ok! Do you want variegated, normal, or both?
@PlantyPlanter Honestly variegated is great so I can maybe pair it with my variegated shell ginger depending on how they are, but normal SS is still very gorgeous nontheless! Pretty greens 🌱🀍
@kscape ok! I’ll look for both! Have you looked at the links I’ve already sent you?
@kscape this place looks a little more sketchy, but the info is correct and I think it comes with the plant itself also and not just the rhizome! https://www.caribbeangardenseed.com/products/solomon-seal-white-plant-roots-shade-loving @sarahsalith I can’t find the first place I sent you! Do you remember?
@PlantyPlanter Yes I have! The rhizome one is looking good! I’d be happy to start it from scratch!!! πŸ₯Ή
@kscape got it! I’m so happy! So that’s the on you’re gonna oder?
Welcome to Greg, @PrudentSalsa! I have hope. I've been waiting a while for this plant to poke above the soil. 😁
Woah!! @PrudentSalsa - I just saw your Song of India! How long have your had it? It looks incredible!!
@sarahsalith omg wow you’re so nice! I’m so glad that you’re still hopeful! We’re all on the edge of our seats!
@sarahsalith I’m so excited for you!
Woah, @PlantyPlanter! You found them on Amazon?! That's awesome!!
@sarahsalith ikr! Still a littleοΏΌ wary but still!
@PlantyPlanter Honestly I might but it may be a few days! I’ve been banned from purchasing anything plant related for a few weeks by the BF 🫣 I’ll convince him somehow, he loves cool looking plants AND they have cool interesting flowers!!!

Also, just looked up basic SS needs, COMPLETE opposite of my variegated ginger πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€ SS seems to thrive in shaded semi-bright to low light and variegated shells love bright and humidity πŸ₯²
@kscape the one with the "true" Solomon's Seal is the larger one, according to the information I've read.
@kscape oh yes I’m sorry I forgot to tell you! So which one are you getting? Can you send a screenshot?
@kscape I put mine in the ground under a few cedar trees. The ground is pretty tough and there's lots of shade (and poison ivy and Virginia creeper and ants).
@sarahsalith you’ve done, research πŸ₯Ή
@sarahsalith did you look for more rhizomes?
@PlantyPlanter this one! πŸ€”

Would y’all say it’s okay to place it in a front porch, that is well shaded by trees? I don’t have access to a backyard and maybe planning to move in the upcoming months and would like to make it easily tranplantable and transportable πŸͺ΄
@kscape yes! For sure!
@PlantyPlanter Now this would be my first time with this type of plant, how do you handle the humidity and whatnot? πŸ«£πŸ’§
@kscape I’ve never really had any problems with that, they are ok with the New England humidity so I don’t think they have a preference. If it’s a drastically hotter then the Solomon seal would show signs and you would just have to water them more. I’ve never watered them because they are outside so going off that you live in Texas I would water them about every week and see how they do! I would get normal soil that can retain a healthy about of moisture and maybe a wee bit of fertilizer like that marigold grow transplant start up stuff if you want. I don’t know if normal potting soil varies based on different states or what brand you get
@kscape are you planning of putting them in a pot?
I am so sorry that that paragraph had no punctuation πŸ₯²
@sarahsalith oops i thought I added my response to this question but I guess it didn’t go through πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ got it, this is helpful info! Also, love the ants 🀣🀣
@PlantyPlanter Yes, planning to keep them in big or small pot depending on how they get! I’d like to keep them contained, if possible! It’s okay about the grammar 🀭🀭
@sarahsalith have you changed your info for the Solomon seal on your oasis????
@kscape ok, so my response went through too! Got it!
@kscape I had mine in pots originally, but the pots were too small. I would recommend a pot at least 8 inches in diameter- that way, it gives it room to grow. οΏΌοΏΌοΏΌ
@PlantyPlanter haven't changed it yet. I'll do it today. I need a new picture.
@sarahsalith ok! Ya definitely do that!
@sarahsalith I’ve never grown them in pots 🫣 so I’m gonna go with Sara! I think they like being together
@sarahsalith Thanks for the pot info! I was assuming I would need a bigger pot in diameter since these babies likes to arch and expand! What about in height? Are they the types to burrow into the ground and expand their roots deep in the ground? @PlantyPlanter

I reside in Central Texas and specifically where I live, I get 14 hours of sunlight, according to Greg. I have access to East and West windows and a North facing porch. It’s usually humid during the summers with absolutely no wind sometimes, but the front porch does get a lil windy and cool πŸ€”
@kscape I honestly couldn’t tell you if the roots grow really deep but they have rhizomes so I don’t think they grow incredibly deep but I think a normally deep pot with be fine, maybe just a little deeper if you’re really worried but I don’t think you have to worry about it too much
@kscape can you take a pic of your front porch
@kscape - I ordered the ones off Amazon (to replace the ones that the USPS stole, sorry @ABCD) -- when they come in, I'll pull them from the pot to show you how deep they are in the pot. (:
@sarahsalith that’s great! Maybe peters will come in and you’ll have even MORE VSS!
Is this a porch or a balcony? Like is this a house or something else?
@PlantyPlanter ignore the semi-ugly planters πŸ’€πŸ’€ none of those are mine. I live with roommates so it’s theirs. I’ll be cleaning up the front and organizing a bit since I’m tired of the front looking all ugly πŸ₯²
@sarahsalith Thank you! You’re so helpful! So incredibly happy and grateful to have u on Greg 🀍
I forgot the picture πŸ’€ @PlantyPlanter
@kscape I don’t see a photo 🧐
@kscape nvm!
@kscape does your porch get any sun?
@kscape I screenshotted a few places that I think would be good for the ss!
@kscape I think this pot would look really cute! https://www.etsy.com/listing/1166921984/
@PlantyPlanter Uhhhh, yes on the left side, but hardly ever is it full sun πŸ€”

Also, is it safe for pets? I have a little outside kitty we care for and she sometimes sleeps on the porch (there’s a water dish in the first screenshot 🀣)

Love the pot btw, bookmarked it! ✨
@kscape that’s what that was! I’m positive it is! I’ve never seen anything try to eat it and we have sooooo many bunnies and it is safe for human consumption! At least nobody I know has died yet! They are part of the asparagus family
@kscape omg is she yours πŸ₯Ί or is she a stray?
@PlantyPlanter exactly my thought since they’re used for cures!

She’s a stray that wandered in our yard! I said β€œpspspsps” and she came to me and immediately attached to me. I can’t bring her in, so I have a tiny little bed for her and I feed & give her water! It’s too hot for her to be without both, and cats are my favorite so her and I get along ✨

We saw her when I was watching Star Wars for the first time with my bf, so we named her Saber πŸ₯Ή
@kscape have you been able to get her in a cage to bring her to the vet?
@kscape you should plant some cat nip!
@PlantyPlanter Unfortunately no πŸ™ I’m struggling financially and can’t afford since vets here are kind of expensive, especially if they’re not up to date with their vaccines. Catnip I planted in the backyard as a joke has grown quite big, so she’s been having fun lately! 🀭
@kscape could you buy some heart worm flea and tick treats for her? Sorry I don’t mean to guilt trip you
@kscape πŸ˜‚
@PlantyPlanter oh no you’re not! Lucky for you, when I WAS financially stable and found her, I was smart enough to get all the medicines and treatments for her! She had some rough patches on her skin (luckily not mange) and I sprayed some antiseptic solution to cure her wounds. Also got some ear wipes and some treats to help her digestive system. She’s also taking some immune support chews 😊
@kscape that’s great!
@kscape too bad they don’t make brith control treats for cats πŸ₯²
@kscape omg when you get the Solomon seal you’ll have to send pics of her with it! Especially when they grow!
Oh yes yes I will do that!! Ahh so excited! I hope I get it soon🌱🀭 @PlantyPlanter @sarahsalith
@kscape 🀞🏻this doesn’t turn out like @sarahsalith experience! Cause if not I’ll be able to finally recommend a good seller!
@PlantyPlanter I’m hoping for good results in the next few weeks, I’ll let y’all know! πŸͺ΄βœ¨

Like random ppl that I’ve never interacted with that have never like a comment or post of mine just randomly follow me????
