Welcome to Plucky’s Canna Fairy Garden! Since joining Overgrow, I have been wanting to create a grow diary and share it with you all. However, while I help, @bassman5420 runs the grow rooms at our house. So, I decided to start my own little adventure with a 2x2x4 tent, Earthbox Jr., a couple seeds, and a touch of magic.
Ready to join in on the little peoples magic.
I have been taking pictures and writing things down…but have also been working a lot and am a little slow getting things out. So I will get all caught up here and then hopefully give a daily update of some sort.
To start, I had to cover some writing on my little tent. Every fairy garden needs some butterflies, so I sewed some patches on. This took a bit more effort than expected…but will add more in the future!
I like magic.

Blue Dream x Gelato and Rose Cookies x Strawberry Banana: harvested from the plants recently grown and pollinated by @bassman5420 ***No Till Or Die Trying (3x3 and 2x4 living soil beds)*** - #382 by bassman5420
So excited to see what they become!
Seeds placed in a small container of water.
Earthbox Jr. filled with Build a Soil mix, pre-moistened: Thanks Bassman
Seeds planted straight in soil after approx. 17 hour soak.
Moonstone added to the reservoir for root growth.
Amethyst, Moss-agate, moonstone, and citrine scattered about the corners and edges of the Earthbox.
Also, added this cute fence @bassman5420 got for me.
March 27-28th…impatiently waiting. Some cover crops sprouting up and bringing life to the tent…though not the life I am most excited for!
First signs of life! The Blue Dream X Gelato has poked her head up and is trying to escape her shell.
A little hide and seek in this picture haha!
There she is!
Blue continues to escape her shell and stand on her own little stem.
Later that same day
Getting worried about Rose…where are you my darling?
Poor Rose…still hasn’t made her appearance. Did a little excavating to see what was going on…and nothing. So I covered it back in the soil and sprayed it with some water. Decided to go ahead and pick out another seed. As much as I love the idea of just planting straight in the soil, I placed this seed in a good ole wet paper towel to sprout. Hoping this one was meant to be.
The Blue Dream x Gelato officially sets off the plant mode on my phone haha. Loving the cover crop adding some green to the garden.
The Rose Cookies X Strawberry Banana is starting to crack and grow! Yay!
Ready to plant the RC X SB. Put a little dome over it for humidity. Checked on good ole Blue, growing a little every day!
Later that night…RCXSB is trying so hard!
Love opening my tent after work and checking on their progress…even the subtle changes…or cover crop!
Looks a bit crazy coming out of its shell!
Blue Dream x Gelato stretching out those baby leaves!

Thanks for joining in. Glad you like patches and crystals! Also…just realised I wrote “rose” instead of “Roze”… several times! I did work the last 7 nights and am just going to sleep after getting off work this morning lol. Although I also accidently wrote strawerry on my tag a week ago but was too lazy to fix it
