It likes continually damp soil, so hopefully it will be happy in its new ‘pod’. I love their spiralled leaves – it’s commonly known as the ‘Curly Wurly’ plant … it suits it well πŸ™‚

    Oh my oh my! I do love those pods and how you decorated them. The Juncus are perfect for them. Good eye. I have a Juncus too which I will be writing a post on in the near future. I am currently keeping it under fluorescent light bulb as I don’t have enough sunlight. It is my experiment to see if it survives past more than a month. We will see. I love your posts. Keep them coming.
