Jade plant update

The jade plant cuttings have been resting in the bedroom for a week or so; tonight we dragged Jake & Sam away from their computers for a bit of gardening, and put them in soil.

Jennifer bought some special, just-for-succulents potting soil, and a bottle of root-growth-stimulating hormone. (Isn’t science wonderful?) There’s no subtlety of technique – wet the end of the cutting, dip it in the magic root powder, stick it in the dirt.

At least, I hope that’s the right technique. I’m half-expecting all eight cuttings to shrivel & die. (That’s usually what happens when I try to grow plants.)

I have pictures. One of them will show up here, sooner or later.
