Repotting Plants

I did a little plant care yesterday, something I do a couple times a year.

Much to my surprise, this off-cut from my fiddle fig tree actually sprouted roots. I cut this guy off from my tree forever ago because it was really long and lanky. Clearly this guy really needs some dirt and a pot.


It's kind of hard to tell in this picture but my avocado tree is like the leaning Tower of Pisa. It's also perpetually droopy because I can't seem to water it enough. I'm changing it to a deeper more narrow pot which I hope will hold it upright better.


 Here it is a day later, with perkier leaves. 


I want the fiddle fig to really grow now. It's in a southern exposure room but away from the window. I'll see if that gives it enough juice, otherwise I'll move it.


 It does look a little like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree right now. :)
