Re: Rubromarginata is not growing

That species has never done good for me. It is considered one of the cold hardier ones, but it shoots later than others and that is a problem if there is any winter damage.

Re: 2014 Big Chill II

The cut stumps will ooze & support some interesting fungal? growth on those. Phy viridis in particular seems to do this.
I remember having something like that happen

Re: Indoor gardening

House plants are nice in the winter, but I neglect them in the growing months.
