Being always on the hunt for something rarer, something more "exotic"; I tend to forget how the easiest, cheapest, most "disposable" species can amaze and embarrass people like myself.

No special treatment; all I did was to take her out of that blasted terrarium.

Daniel your avatar is creepy :biggrin:

Poor thing got attacked by aphids, not on the upper plants but the ones below which are surrounded by dead leaves. I guess aphids could make it there because of the dry areas. It stayed under water for a while and was saved.

Then crows made short work of ALL her blooms (no seeds this summer, every stalk cut by damn birds) so she's living under a big plastic bottle now.

And look at her! Only getting stronger, a true survivor (did that just rhyme?)
