Familiar Foliage


It's been a month since I brought home these beautiful babies from Mrs. Graye's Greenhouse. They're very happy and thriving well...in these photos you'll see a "Goldfish Plant," which is growing a baby goldfish, and a Hawarthia, also known as a "Zebra Plant" but it is a different species than what you may be used to. It's chlorophyll-poor, so parts of it are clear and you can see all the cell walls...of all the times I wish I had an electron microscope. The other is called, "Baby's Tears," and kind of looks like a Chia-pet, it's so fun and grows like crazy!
