I have been recognizing some errors, lately, with stuff I do with plants. Seems every day or so I learn something new, whether from a book, or another garden blog, or searching for answers online. So. I did my Curry Plant cuttings wrong. Half of them have died. Here's what's left:
Next, I have been buying the wrong kind of sand to mix into my potting soil. I was using play sand (easy to find and cheap) but should have used a coarse, sharp sand or horticulture sand. Will have to look more carefully for that next time. Or just switch back to using perlite. The play sand has very small, fine grains which actually make the soil more dense, don't open up air pockets or drainage at all. So the roots can drown and rot.
Once I realized this I went through several days of upending pots and remixing to lighten the soil once again. Most of the Palms got this treatment, also the established Curry Plant and my entire planter of Green Onions. I had noticed the soil was staying damp an awful long time, so figure this was a good move. I busted up that pink ceramic pot that had no drainage holes for shards
