Now. On to the Next Problem....

Yesterday afternoon, I potted up some of the Mexican Hat Mother of Millions.

Those will last a long time in the mini conservatory...
I also potted up a couple of stems of portulaca.  I'm not so crazy about those.  They look a little big...

My problem now is finding more pots to put tiny plants in. I may have to make some myself.
I found these at Civano nursery this morning.  The two plants in front of Tessie have a lot of "pups".  Those will be easy to root and pot up.

It will just take some time.

I am going to plant the French Thyme, behind Tessie In a pot and keep it outside for the time being... It requires full sun.  Maybe there is a way to plant a little in a small pot and move it into the conservatory when needed.  We shall see. 

I am off to have lunch now.  Walter brought Lucky Wishbone home.  Yum.

I'm hungry.

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey. Regarding pots for miniatures, here's what I have used. You probably know
all about these, but perhaps your readers don't.
1. toothpaste caps (f you can find them these days) for small pots.
2. other caps from food containers for medium pots. These are easy to find. Look at
drink bottle caps, wine bottle caps,and tops from salad dressing, condiments, non-aerosol hairspray
3. for large pots, look for tops from prescription drug containers. But the best
ones are from paper egg containers. Look closely where the eggs go and also between.
The fun of using these is they are cheap, paint easily, are easy to cut and there are a variety of styles from different brands.
All the tops can be successfully painted with acrylics. I like earth colors: hunter
green, terra cotta, black and dark grey.
