Plants: July 2014

So after weeks of not appearing at the nursery, we finally have Blue Star Creeper (Pratia Blue)!~ Hopefully it doesn't start dying like the Pratia White on the front lawn, which never recovered from a snail attack.

I've also managed to somehow grow a corn seedling in a tiny pot meant for Japanese strawberries.
Now our plant count is as follows:

1x Pink Creeping Thyme
1x Scottish Moss
2x Pratia White (Medium)
3x Pratia Blue (Medium)
3x Pratia Blue (Small)
1x Snow in Summer
1x Japanese Maple
1x Purple Corn Seedling
15x Purple Corn Seeds (Planted)

The pot and cup system used to grow this purple corn seedling is called 'Shippon: Self Watering Animal Tail'.
It originally came with wild strawberry seeds, which I planted at the same time as a single corn kernel.

None of the strawberry seeds germinated, and over time they began to mould. The corn kernel didn't seem to be bothered by the mould growing up through the filter system. The log below shows the gradual growth of the corn seedling in the Shippon cup.
