Default How small can a pup be? - An experiment

When I divided up my ornata pad, this little thing became a “collateral casualty”


So I took a picture from the top…


…and one from the side (it is really skimpy)…


…and stuck it in the ground.

In a couple of months, - maybe sooner, we will either have an empty husk or a nice little brand new ornata.

Stay tuned


The reason I joined this forum was to share experiences,
my own and those of others and to learn from them.

With mycorrhizae, careful watering and some TLC you will have another ornata in no time.

I love experiments!
