DIY Crystal Soil Plant: Part 2

New items on Nicolekiss Boutique!

Remember my previous entry on the DIY Crystal Soil Plant?

Few readers requested for photos of how the plant would turn out after plantation.

Well, I have good and bad news.

Good news was my plant did grow. It grew up to 4 inches in my wine glass.

Bad news, however, was that it died. Because I went away to China for two weeks, only to come back and found that it lacked nutrients and withered (hence my advice that it needed to be transferred to soil after it started sprouting, else you would need liquid form food plant to feed it).

And the good news again is (hey, I didn't say it was ONE good news :p)...

A reader of Nicolekiss, Jenny, was generous enough to provide some lovely photos of HER magic bean and plant.

Here are the photos. It's a bit small though, don't squint your eyes. :)

According to Jenny, that was the first two weeks. Then the plant was moved to her garden. Which started sprouting everywhere on her fence.

After 1 to 2 months, (bigger photos, yay!)

When it's riped, it would fall to the ground (I think).

Peel it open and you will find plentiful of magic beans (not so magical now) inside!!
