Green Thumb Sunday
Gardeners, Plant and Nature lovers can join in every Sunday; visit As the Garden Grows for more information.

I re-potted some plants this week. They weren't doing well, due to over watering. I read that Aloe likes wide, shallow pots, so I put some styrofoam packing peanuts in the bottom of the pot to aid with drainage and take up some extra space. The Mother-In-Law's Tongue needed a few leaves removed, along with some rotten roots.
Happy GTS!

Thanks for rescuing my plants once again!

Mom- no problem. I really wanted to get my hands into some dirt, and this was the next best thing to being outside.

Hi Sarah,
A tip regarding the aloe repotting: After the aloe has been in the pot awhile, make sure there are no air pockets around the styrofoam. This can cause the roots to dry out even if the soil seems moist. Happy GTS, quite late!

no rain- thanks for the tip. I will definitely check that out.
