While I was at it, still...

I decided to up out my Oxalis, also. 
 

It’s a cool and very pretty plant; delicate though.

its roots are a bulb system and those lil section can just be snapped off and planted.

this plant went so limp and looks weak after it’s transition. I hope it forgives me.

I’ve never even tried roses or even played with em but I figure I’d try a few things. These get direct sunlight until the sun is set. They require more water than anyone should use in this desert. 
applied a few pruning techniques and solid Correctly watering at the right time of day (early am), keeping base free of weeds. 
To ensure a bushy rose bush, when you notice it blooming and go to dead head it, trim it back to the leaflet with 5 or more leaves on it -it will produce a bushy flowering plant. 
There's no flowers yet but the pruning has allowed it to push its energy to the healthy parts instead of wasting energy tying to feed useless parts (people should actually do this too 😉

has anyone ever made/experimented with Hypertufa? 
 

I haven’t yet but I will eventually. It seems like a cool lil project to do and super customizable to what you want/need.  
there are plenty of websites that provide common recipes and directions 

 

Some recipes go into a lot of detail

Some recipes are more basic.

Transplanted some sage into the ground this weekend. It was in a pot at a friend's house. They're moving and so were getting rid of stuff. I spotted the Sage plant and asked for it. Sage granted.

 

Made a watering device so I could fill it then walk away to do other stuff. I always end up just standing there and watching because of the interest in watching water do sht.

 

Painted an old Kimchi jar after drilling three 1/8" holes at the bottom rim of one side.

Set it on top of a metal thing I found at a thrift store. Filled it with water.

Blooms is over for this lavender for this year. The bees dig these. My neighbor says it gives them a sort of 'stoney trip'.

 

How do I prune this? Do I cut the seed pods off only? (see pictures)

I’ve been thinking of this thread lately.  
thank you  bumping it. 
 

@Ko SprueOne

A few docent things to do with those depending on what you want your end result to be. 
 

Any flower (all of you) should be dead headed  (cut it off) after it blooms. If that old flower falls in your plant it could lead to a bacteria or even mold to grow. 
UNLESS you are trying to get seeds from it. 

i would harvest those seeds-and cut the bloom off.  
If you are keeping it-you should definitely be able to give it a rejuvenation prune.  All the way down and allow it go dormant in the winter  and start fresh when’s it’s time.  Im not 100 if you can take it all the way down to the stalk- but just in case  leave a few branches with a few nodes so it has some new growth starter points.

Dead Headed to avoid bacteria and mold, Good info. I didn't know that.

 

I'm not trying to harvest the seeds for now. The ones that fell a couple years ago grew this one in the picture.

 

When you say, All the way down to the stalk, does that mean under the bloom until it reaches the branch it's growing from? See the red lines in the picture. Or further down than that?

 

Thanks for the replies, awesome thread!

Exactly.   Where the stem starts at the leaves. 
 

yea. Any dead or dying plant matter (including flowers) should be removed from and from around any plant.    

 

also. If you see a dying/I’ll branch /leaf or any part of a plant that isn’t doing well, cut it off!! 
 

the plant will use its energy to keep trying to repair that instead of sending that energy to new growth.  
 

kinda similar to life. 
 

we can learn a lot from plants.
