As you know from my last post, my burgundy okra plants have been having a streak of bad luck. There’s only one currently growing in the ground, with two more attempting to get their second and third winds in a safe place near the house. One is growing in potted media, while the other is sitting in a small bottle of water. After about a week, this is what the latter looks like:
Isn’t it somehow comforting to see how plants have such a strong survival instinct? I had only planned on letting the cutting sit in water overnight, but forgot about it. Luckily I remembered about it, because the water had just about evaporated when I found it!
When this baby grows at least another two pairs of leaves, I’ll put it back out in the garden where I hope it will be able to grow undisturbed until it has lived a proper, long life.
