宁静的溪流,轻音乐, 图片,诗篇23

耶和华是我的牧者,我必不致缺乏 。
他使我躺卧在青草地上,
领我在可安歇的水边。
他使我的灵魂苏醒,
为自己的名引导我走义路。

我虽然行过死荫的幽谷,也不怕遭害,
因为你与我同在;
你的杖,你的竿,都安慰我。
在我敌人面前,你为我摆设筵席;
你用油膏了我的头,使我的福杯满溢。

我一生一世必有恩惠慈爱随着我;
我且要住在耶和华的殿中,直到永远。

Psalm 23 - peaceful stream animated picture

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.

Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord

How to propagate Fittonia (Nerve Plant)? Stem cutting

One of the easiest methods for Fittonia propagation is by using stem cuttings.  This article explains how to do it.


Preparation:

  1. Plastic cups
  2. One Plastic Ziploc bag
  3. Houseplant soil
  4. Spoon (or shovel), fork, sprayer
  5. Scissors or Trimming shears
  6. Tissue paper (or cloth) for cleaning

Steps:

  1. Cut the Fittonia stems, selecting stems with 4 to 5 leaves.

  2. Put some houseplant soil into the two plastic cups.  The reason to use clear plastic cups is - to allow you to see the root development clearly.
  3. Place the cut-stems about an inch down into the soil, and then pack the soil around the base of the stem.
  4. Water the cuttings, place them into a plastic ziploc bag, and then spray them with water.
  5. Blow air into the bag to expand it so that the plants have room to grow. Once the air has been blown into the bags.  Close the bags and place them on the top of a storage cabinet, which is about a foot below the fluorescent lighting fixture.

  6. Every couple of days, spray more water, blow air into the bag, and reseal it. 

FAQs

May I know why ziplock bag is required? Can I just leave it in the open? How long does it take to see growth?

Ziplock is required to maintain humidity until it forms roots else the plant n leaves wilt. It takes about 10 days to 14 days to form root.


Did you add drainage holes? I've seen it done with them and without, so just wondering if you add the holes.

No, I did not add any drainage holes this time. I will have to try that with the next batch of Fittonia that I propagate. Thank you for the advice!

I placed my Fittonia in ziplock bag for about 3 weeks. I saw 3 young shoots. I bring it out of bag but it go limp again. May I ask if you have this experience? Or know what went wrong?

Plants, much like people, need some time to adjust to new surroundings. Instead of just taking the bag off all at once. Do one of the following methods to let the plant adapt to the surroundings gradually.


Method 1:

Punch a few holes in the bag (using a hole-punch/etc) and gradually bringing in the humidity.

Method 2:


  1. Remove the plants from the bag for a short period of time (30 mins - 1 hour for the first time or two). Then place the plants back in the bag. 
  2. Do this every day, gradually increasing the amount of time spent out of the bag until eventually removing the bag all together.
