A Lil Wonder, A Lil Sweet

Monday, November 09, 2020

Mung bean sprouts also known as tauge in Malay are little wonders! You can literally watch those tiny mung beans send out roots right away after soaking them overnight. Their short stems will form shortly after right before your eyes.


Healthy powerhouse - crunchy bean sprouts - for health in just 48 hours :D


This was how those bean sprouts look while inside a sprouting bottle...


My 'Grand Duke of Tuscany' jasmine sent out a new bloom again. The scent is delectable! 


While the stevia plant is still flourishing some healthy sweet leaves, the little bush also sent out a stalk of flowers. How cute!


Looks like the green fittonia plant in my terrarium is not finished with flowering yet. A stalk of yellow blooms has flourished from another stem.


See three cattleya orchids in the pic below, they are borne from just one stalk. They are jumbo blooms! 


Happy gardening!

  1. Hi Stephanie ! I would love to grow stevia plant in my garden someday as I have heard so much about it as a healthy substitute for sugar ,Moong beans or Green gram sprouts are very commonly consumed in our region and are good in salads and can be used for making savory pancakes that are tasty.I can imagine how lovely fragrance of 'Grand Duke of Tuscany' would be smelling in your garden.It would be my pleasure if you join my link up party related to gardening here at http://jaipurgardening.blogspot.com/2020/11/bees-and-butterflies-on-flower.html
