The British say they would like a spot of tea, which I enjoy, too. But something else I crave is a little spot of color on living plants in the house during the winter months.
Just break off a few stems of an ice plant growing in a pot outside. Stick the stems in a pot of soil and bring inside and keep moist until it roots and grows. The outside plant will die during a freeze, anyway. So you kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. Rescuing a plant for another year and being able to enjoy it inside.
Another plant that needs to be brought inside is Kalanchoe. As this plant demonstrates, they tend to get leggy and the stems drape down. To start another plant, follow the same steps as for the Ice Plant. So it’s possible to keep starting new plants almost indefinitely.
“I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.” David Hobson
