So I recently the Welwitschia mirabilis I ordered came in, and it was very much in need of a transplant. But it's fairly well known that these plants detest being unpotted. But I made up the media, and did it today, and took some pictures for prosperity. I really hope this plant out lives me!
The plant as it arrived:
All of my ingredients and "tools"
Cheap pea-stone, washed
Mixing and taking pictures proved difficult, so this is just the final mix. Along with the pea-stone, there is a heavy helping of High Desert play sand, a couple hand-fulls of "Citrus, Palm, and Succulent" potting mix, and then a little bit of perlite I had laying around. The idea being- very fast draining.
My roommate volunteered to take over the photography
I tried hard to not disturb the roots (Time will tell how much damage I actually did)
Pack it down nicely!!
A little superthrive couldnt hurt, could it?
All watered in
Thanks for looking, any input or questions are welcome!!
