Incredible Mosaic Plant

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

I was totally taken by surprise with this find... At a nursery that I patronise recently, I saw a pot of mosaic plants that looks really interesting. They have yellow flowers.


I wanted a small plant of it but the attendant said they do not have any and offered to give me a few stolons. Notice those stolons at the sides of the pot? He cut a few for me. He told me to just poke them into wet soil and the plant will grow. And it did :-)




Earlier, the stolons were lifeless and limp (almost cannot be held!) when I reached home (sorry, no photo). Overnight, the plant just sprung back to life. What an incredible plant!

So, the next time you are at a nursery and wanted to have this plant, you can try asking for a few stolons ;-D

  9. Interesting...I passed this by last weekend because it was so expensive. Perhaps just a little cutting would have done the trick...

  11. Beautiful.
    I see why it's called "mosaic" with small, dainty squares.
    And you did wonderful with it.
    Yellow flowers, another benefit as it is beautiful enough.
