I did a bit of houseplant repotting yesterday afternoon, a chore that is sadly neglected at this time of year in favour of outdoor gardening tasks. But I have a shaky reputation to uphold and had reached the point where I no longer wanted people to come by for a visit should they happen to see the state of my succulents.
I bought this Boweia aka False Sea Onion last Oct while giving a gardening workshop at Ladyfest Guelph. Wherever I go, I always manage to find a plant to purchase. Thankfully I am not allowed to bring plants back over the border when I travel into the U.S or it would be mayhem.
Look at it now! I am often attracted to plants that are like strange alien lifeforms but this succulent is one of the more absurd in my collection.
