Subject 02: Planted

These will look a little less impressive at first because they’ll be growing (or not!) from seeds. We won’t know what they’ll look like for a while now. I planted the climbing plants closer to the central stake and the rest of them all around the pot.

Then I watered the new planted seeds. From here, it’s a matter of waiting to see what springs up!

Subject 02: Garden in a Bag Mix

My second subject actually consists of four mini-subjects. Each of these belong to a store-bought garden in a bag mix of plants. I plan to plant these all in one pot with a central stake for the climbing plants. I will not be researching proper methods for planting these. I will simply put them in some dirt, water them regularly, and then see what happens. Below are the four varieties of plant I will be attempting to grow:

Egyptian Pea Vine

Egyptian Pea Vine

This is supposedly an ancient type of pea vine cultivated since the dawn of mankind. It being sold in a garden in a bag mix may say something about its yield.



This looks to be actually referring to one of many species of Tropaeolum.

Thunbergia (Black Eyed Susan Vine)


These little seeds look like peppercorns. The plant itself seems to be Thunbergia alata if the packaging can be trusted. Like any vines, I’m sure these things will grow fast and be damn near impossible to kill.



These seeds look more like a dried herb than anything else. The wikipedia page for Zinnia inexplicably has a stereoscopic view of the Zinnia seeds. There are also over 100 cultivars of Zinnia. My conclusion is that people who like Zinnia are weird. I will plant these too, but wear gloves.
