With my baby shower coming up, I decided to take a break from writing. (I’ll get back to the Creating a Character posts soon.) I was posed with a party favor problem. What to give as a party favor? I didn’t want to hand out candy, candles or soap. So, I decided to give plants. Odd, I know, but it’s different and turned out decent.
The plants that I chose to propagate were my spider plant and an indoor vine. I’ve had the spider plant since I was ten and the vine has been around since I was five. Both plants, give or take, are about 10-years-old and are super easy to care for.
I cut off the shoots, placed them in water and waited for them to sprout. It took about a week for the majority to grow roots.
I found some old pots that originally held morning glories. We had a bunch of them, and I decided that they would make perfect party favor pots. I bought all-purpose soil from Walmart and planted the new shoots in the pots. After drenching them in water I set them by the window to adjust.
I was going to put ‘Thank you’ labels on the pots but never bought the labels. Instead I had white acrylic paint lying around and used that. I was nervous at first because I didn’t know if the paint would wipe off if I made a mistake. It did, rather easily, and the “thank yous” became easier. Here’s a picture of the first three. I made about twenty of these.
