Okay so I repotted the IKEA plants two weeks ago. At first, I tried to repot them individually, yet the roots of the plants had already fused with the organic pots, which is why I placed the whole bundle of plants into the new flower pots together. Now, looking back on it, I have to say that it would have been easier if I had planted the seeds into regular pots in the first place. Growing them in the organic IKEA pots makes it more of a hassle later on. Anyways.
Two of the three sunflower sets look like this now… somehow, the stems turned out to be long and dangly, as well as too weak to support the weight of the plant… honestly, I feel like I messed them up somehow. Are sunflowers supposed to be that dangly? I guess I have to build something around them to support the plants, or tie the stems to a stick or something like that. Eventually, I will have to separate the bunch and repot them again, because, when they become too big, they will probably be even more in the way of each other. Urgh! Last time I tried to separate the plants from the organic IKEA pot, I tore half of them apart.
The other flower set and the remaining sunflowers are potted together and look like that. I’m excessively proud they have grown to look the way they are supposed to look by now. Also, the sunflowers in this pot (farthest from the camera) have thick stems and grow vertically – so what’s up with the other sunflowers in the round pots? I don’t get it. If you read this and happen to be a gardening expert, please comment below and tell me what I’m doing wrong 😀
All in all, I hope the flowers will blossom soon <3 it has been really sunny and hot in Berlin these days (mind that when you decide to go on a bus or a subway train, haha), so fingers crossed 🙂
