Some More Pics from Playing In The Dirt

Here's some more pics from my repotting session with my AVF on Monday.

M3M - I also discovered that I have Optimara Little Rose Quartz if you are looking for that in your collection. I deleted the email and don't have the ability to go back and look at your list.

And look what surprise I got in one of the bags when I opened it. I had no idea that I'd find blooms inside the bag. The plant had only been in there for about 2 weeks.

What a nice treat.

My apologies for posting the same picture and comment twice in two different threads. I'll try not to let that happen again.

Looks like you had a great time digging in the dirt. What a wonderful surprise to find a blooming AV! I'm curious, what is the purpose of the red, white, yellow and green things in the pots (are they toothpicks)?

Barbara,
I'll take fertile as long as it's AVs and not human babies :) LOL I already have four kids (21 - 4) and I'm in my 40's and the next babies that are mine will be my grandkids. My last child was an unplanned surprise.

Donna - yes, those are plastic toothpicks that I use to anchor the mouse ears so they don't get knocked and come up/out. I usually remove them once I repot or when I'm sure there has been enough new growth to guarantee that the plant has taken root.

Molly - you keep track of the list and I'll be glad to share.

M3M - I'll most likely have more by the spring.

Dora
