I brought in one of the peach color.
This may call for a do over. I almost let these go unnoticed until I remembered they might need water.
Plan to put the Burro Tails up high with rhipsalis for contrast.All Christmas cacti together, Easter Cactus toward the back because they won't bloom soon, can trade places later.Hate the room that it takes for Epis, but I'm bringing in all three, haircuts for 2.Two tomatoes. two tomatoes, repeat after me.
Too many Spiders, I know. Repot the Foxtail fern separately.LIne up just six Kalanchoe in green pots, a couple of extra pots just in case, to keep them.

A popular blogger disparaged trinkets like my tin rooster this week while gushing about a California vendor who features ceramic gnomes. My rooster is a sentimental piece.
The last time I saw my late brother the Colonel, he was at a posh nursing home in Florida which he believed to be a motel. The facility had a beautiful atrium garden with a tin chicken on a post near the center. My red rooster, one of yes an ark full of imports, reminds me of that visit. I had no camera with me, but made from memory a detailed list of the plants when I got home..
Christmas Cactus in Aqua pots, Red Ch. Cactus in Green potsAmaryllis on north shelf, bring to a prominent spot as they bloom.
Find a nice spot for the areca palm -- and the small one that grew when I pulled out a culm by accident..
May yet dig the bird of paradise, maybe an Alpinia
Repot Firecracker Fern. I really want to throw it away, but take out the Ghost plants and it might be a nice plant again. Think I'll just put the Ghosts along in front of the pole cuts but Squirrels will probably eat them.The list goes on and on, reminding myself.
Made succulent pots and stepping stones from what was left over when we poured cement to make a triangle landing in front of the mule barn entry door. Didn't think to get everything ready the night before, so I was grabbing any container and improvising on the spot with some random broken tiles and tessarae from another time. Dog prints showed up on fresh concrete, smoothed out as best we could on the landing.
___Pot up Ricinus.
Took 9 white and 9 pale pink Pentas cuttings. Hope I'm not doing it too late.
As Pots come into the greenhouse, if they're too far down in the pot, I pull out the plant and put a scoop or two of potting soil in the bottom of the pot and fill in around the newly elevated plant. Sometimes they cry out for a top dressing of fresh soil instead.
Epiphyllums cried out for repotting but it will wait until spring.\
Chartreuse and Red Joseph's Coat in mugs, newly scrubbed
__ Pentas -- make bouquets that can root or not. Red, close to Christmas.
White Shrimp. Don't need red, there's a sprout in the greenhouse floor.
Think about taking Porterweed cuttings?
