MY FAILED PROJECTS

SERISSA FOETIDA
Serissa Foetida I brought home a cutting from the beginners course and tried my hand at growing from a cutting.

I used some root hormone, planted it and watered it regularly, but to no avail. No roots grew at all and I threw it out a couple of months later once it was completely dried out.


3 UNIDENTIFIED TREES
Remember the 3 unidentified trees that were in the pot with the Mopane?

Well, when I repotted the Mopane into the large training pot, I repotted these back into the original pot.

They were still alive when I planted them, and I was hoping that they would take so that I could make a small scene. Unfortunately not.

I think that they were another casualty of the black frost that hit in August.

CUTTING WITH INTERESTING TRUNK STRUCTURE
Cutting Sometime during winter my mother-in-law was clearing out her garden. While they were cutting back the ivy around the pool, I claimed some cuttings for the club's lucky draw.

While going through the cuttings, I came across this branch which had an interesting shaped trunk and claimed it for myself.

Again I used some root hormone, planted it and watered it regularly, but to no avail. I think that maybe the root hormone was a little too old.

While at our club show in October I found out about something better to use for cuttings. That is what I will use next time.
