Strong Will to Live

November 17, 2011

I spent all summer and autumn pulling morning glory seedlings out of my balcony planters. Sometimes I caught them when they were still tiny, sometimes I had to wait a little longer to be sure what was a morning glory and what was a radish, and sometimes I missed them until they were 30 cm high and already winding around some other plant.

When it turned cold, I thought they’d finally be finished. But it turns out I underestimated them:

Now they keep popping up in the plants that spent the summer on the balcony and are now back inside. And they don’t even need proper potting mix, either – they’re just as happy in the orchids’ bark chips! Crazy little things!

    Those little leaves are one of my favorite sights each spring. You’re a lucky gal! Are you going to see how much they can grow indoors, or are you yanking them?

      Not going to give the spider mites more food, so they have to go. And many die between my rather infrequent waterings anyway.
