Making Succulent Soil
Some house plants are simply not happy in regular bagged potting soil.
That’s the case with succulents, whether cactus, sedum or jade plant.
Walter outlines a simple recipe for making succulent soil and also
demonstrates how to move cacti without getting stuck by the spines.
Caladiums are a gorgeous foliage plant to have in a landscape. It’s too
bad they are not winter hardy! Walter shows how to dig the corms and how
to keep them indoors over the winter.
Persimmons are certainly a yin-yang kind of fruit. When ripe, they are
delicious. But bite into a green American persimmon and your taste buds
will never forgive you! Walter discovers that some Oriental persimmons
can be eaten raw without puckering. Tune in to find out which ones!
A “tropism” is just a plant movement. Plants move towards sunshine,
toward gravity and toward water. Walter demonstrates several tropisms
and how they make plants behave the way they do.
