Fishy Circumstances

Plants and water

C is working on killing his second orchid, but this one has rebelliously put out the tiniest sprig of green. Orchid watering is theoretically complicated and so I'm not sure how best to encourage it - with or without watering. Actually, wait. It's not even my plant to water; if neglect is why it's now a smidgin green again, then it should be left alone.

Some of PopCap's gardening advice today: "Use only organic fertilizers like vinegar and gasoline." Also, "Give plantz plenty of water: for best resultz cover garden with swimming pool."

Drought continues in the UK, where it's been pouring rain all week.
