Library Planter Rejuvenation

Yes, we maintain a large pot located inside the library opposite the main desk. The pot originated from a DGC program in March 2015. Deborah Trickett taught us all about “thrillers, spillers and fillers”. The finished product remained in the library. A small committee was formed to maintain the pot: watering and changing out plants for seasonal color. We’ve learned a lot over the past 4 years. The library micro-climate can be a harsh one for interior plants: too cold, too hot, too dry or not enough light. Two plants remain from the original planting: the Snake Plant (Mother-in-Law’s Tongue) and the Pathos. Today, the pot was rejuvenated for the first time in months. Dianne Barrett, Sue Ball and Kathy Bradford installed new plants to provide holiday color. The three new plants are: Caladium, Prayer Plant (pink stripes long leaves) and a Pink Polka Dot Plant (dark green pink spotted leaves). Below are before, during and after photos. The two other members of the committee are: Kathy Angle and Pinar Gokce.
