Philomena is definitely a friend of strength! She hasn't lost a single leaf since she has arrived, even with her bumpy journey. What a trooper! Pepper Ann is making an appearance and is doing well, too. Both are loving the lighting they are getting 🥰⛅ I am excited to see how Philomena does as she settles in, even more 💚😍 #foliagefriday #foliageforlife
Thanks @cyndi !! 🥰💚 I've been wanting to repot Philomena, but I'm waiting for her to settle in more and make sure she's done being in shock, before I do anything like that. Trying to be on the safe side. I ideally want her in terracotta or ceramic.
Very welcome.. get the pot you want her in and just temp tuck this pot right inside till time to transplant her. So looks like you already did it.. lol then when time just a lift and shift and add extra soil
I was inspired by the name suggestion that @cyndi gave and decided to name little lady, who has been through a lot, Philomena, which means 'friend of strength' since she reminds me of how strong she is and how strong I need to be. Thank you Cyndi for the inspiration If you look closely, she is growing a new leaf already. What a trooper!! and I am getting my daily dose of new growth, which you all know how new growth brightens my day Swipe to see Cyndi's name suggestion, the full plant and story.
This little lady has been through a lot. I had to leave her behind when I first moved and thought she was done for but when I went back for the rest of my stuff she was still there. I was determined to bring her back. I know Crotons don't like to be moved. I planned to stay a few days, so she moved around a lot, which I'm sure was not fun for her, but stood tall and here she is!! I'm so proud! She is in her permanent spot, so let's see how she does 🤞I haven't name her, if anyone has suggestions
Thank you for the huge compliment @shawnasea 🥰 She was just calling to me at a grocery store and only lost 2 leaves when I bought her. I actually didn't get her the first time I saw her and I went back to the store just to get her. When I moved, I thought she was lost. I almost bought another Petra Croton, but none were calling to me like this one did. It was meant to be that this little lady came to me and we found each other again 💚
