"Forty seven, and it's a mystery. A, clone mystery. On your host Jane Perron and we're talking fight dentist vying plants. been kept up at night, wondering what on Earth that plant that came with a label Ernie marked foliage foliage plant is then joined the club. We've all been there and this week. We're going to try to untangle some of the issues around plant identification with the help of an expert. Yoku Nell is one of the fleet of experts who helped to. Buy Plants sent into the smart plant identification APP, so we ask him to reveal his plant identification secrets and set him a challenge which turns out to be a bit of a doozy actually. Got An email this week, which constituted the only feedback I've had of the negative coined about. Discussion of the black lives matters movement in a recent code and I wanted to just bring you a little bit of my response to this listener to the you can understand it passive. You've felt uncomfortable with what I've said. This will help you to understand where I'm coming from listener has basically argued that they confronted with politics everywhere they turn from news. TV shows sports at work, and the PODCAST was an escape, and they're not sure what. B. M. has to do with plots. And apparently this is ruined the podcast for them. So this was my response. Thanks for your email I'm truly disappointed to know you feel about on the legis- been ruined by a short segment and dozens of hours of audio and more than one hundred forty episodes. Here's the thing though plants are political, the battles that have raged in order to produce the coffee in your up all the chocolate ball in your lunchbox, a testament to that houseplants, a political to from the Victorian plant. Hunters finding. Finding out across the globe to discover that's in inverted commas, species to the poachers, still tearing succulents out of the ground in south. Africa and Venus fly traps from the swamps of the Carolinas to deny that would to borrow a metaphor have used the postcards before looking at the world through glosses, folks by ignorance. It's my mission trying to understand and explain all facets of house plants, and that includes addressing why black people are under represented in horticulture and doing my best to help change that. I don't lose you as a listener, and you'll be able to come on this journey of discovery with me may not always be comfortable to hear, but it will always be fascinating regards Jane. And I really mean I. Hope any listener who feels uncomfortable with discussions of race in the context of guarding and implants will hang around because he only way we're GONNA change. Things is by communicating with each other and learning from each other, and the more you hear from diverse as possible set of people when it comes to house plants, then the better your education and roundedness will become so. Yeah, keep listening, please and let's go on a journey together. In other news, a lawyer became a legend this week, pledging five dollars a month to support on the Ledge and Mary donated Co Dash Five Dot, com and find out more about how to support the show by visiting. The show notes at Jane Perron Dot Com, an update on plant passports. If you're in the UK and you've been following this debate, all you. You listen to my Nicholas spent episode a few months back about the British government's change in rules, which basically meant that anybody who is selling plants was going to have to register to issue plant passports. You'll be interested to know that I was given a phone call by my local plant inspector recently, and she told me that I basically been deregistered because. The rules changed the. They've decided that hobbyists those not making a profit from selling plants no longer needs to be registered but I will update. The plump passports show notes to this effect and I will put any links that I. Find that confirmed this into those notes, because obviously, this is a change that could affect quite a few of you hoping a good way in that, you don't have to worry about planned passports or shelling out for annual inspections. In a world where information is available at the tip of our fingers, it's surprising perhaps that we can struggle to identify a house plot, but yes, it still happens whether you pick something up in a sale, and it's just had a rather cryptic last on it. No label at all or you've been handed, applaud by relative or friend. Pick something up at a swap, and you just don't know what it is. So where do you start well? I always think with plant identification. It's a bit like a giant maze. There may be several paths to reaching your destination. The name of the plant obviously, and there are different ways of getting there. You've just gotTa find out the one that works for you and often time when the topic of plant identification comes up, people immediately comment when I asked for an ID on social media and say Oh. Have you tried this pull that up and tried Google Lens and bad always slightly makes me feel uncomfortable, and here's why I think. These apps are absolutely brilliant things. Things like Google Lens are brilliant. I cannot tell you how exciting it was where my son was doing a survey of the spiders in our house, and we've pointed Google Lens at a spider on the ceiling, and it immediately identified it. I hope correctly as a particular species of spider. It was miraculous, but when I've tested these APPs myself I'm talking about the APPS that use some form of Ai to identify a plant or indeed anything else. It's sometimes been disappointing because I've tested out the up on. Applaud that I know very well the name off and it hasn't always been correct. oftentimes it is which is remarkable, but you have to be aware that it's not always going to send you in the right direction, and in fact I'm going to do a little bit of a live experiment here on the edge. I've got my smartphone here. And I'M GONNA. Go with! Google Lens to identify long. That's here on my window sill to see if the Lens could identify just. Reaching round to. Get the camera on the plant..

And that's becoming ever more popular a chance to spread the house plant love. Just follow me Jane Perron and also at House plants our to join in Dean. Murray is lead singer of biscuit head and the biscuit badges a wonderfully eccentric British group who have created a song that cannot be surpassed. It's called B CSS which is short for as regular listeners will know the British cactus and succulent society. How pray tell you may ask. Can One write a song about the BCS as well? The has managed it. And it's absolutely gorgeous. I'm going to play the song in food at the end of this episode but first let's hear from Dean about his inspiration for the Choon. My Name's Dean I am into bomb cold biscuit heads in the biscuit just I am singer unequally player and I have written a song about Protection Society now. This isn't something you just come across the thing. That's a great thing for a song. Are you a member or an ex member? I have been a member of the National Society and I'm still a member of the league's Brunch Baba. I'd snap at the start time. Yeah he going to all the meetings but I liked it when I used to go. So Yeah and capable of CACTI brilliant and one of the things I love about. This is the way you recite all these Latin names speech as for me as somebody who loves Latin names is make baby. Ridiculously excited takes a certain kind of brain to be able to turn this stuff into a song accompanied. A must say by wonderful video. Which is absolutely amazing. I think he's going to give me a nightmare. Though that video the idea of you guys will turning it slowly turning into CACTI. was brilliant. Brilliant the terrifying. Well when he really in the city so take a life of it so that means for was not lost on me. I have to say having spent much of yesterday. Moving talk between different parts of my house and greenhouse I could I can. I can totally understand that injuries. Yeah a few a few brushes with a couple of things. I should have known better than to to brush past. Yeah that's just. The nature of the beast isn't it? I love is that you really doing capture late in the song the whole ethos and atmosphere of the society in all its eccentric. Brilliant nece about it. Just kind of people are interested so I really enjoy like I'm like I like things like you know people who are just interested in something and they just do it and they find that the people who are interested as well and they just sort of full mclovin society or wherever. They won't do it. It's nice because it just people who have very interested so people we've dumpster. Us or South America to desert dot you look at these. Cacti in their naturally by bringing a slide in for everyone to say about you it's nursing in is a your. I'm sure you have a loyal and passionate fan base all of your songs about CACTI and succulents so what are the kind of topics. Do you cover the songs. I imagine that you're not going to many traditional kind of I love her and she loves me kind of songs not really. It's funny people. Society should write what you look for something if you sell impersonal into into the songs but I do I do about what I know why I'm interested in. Why not. Why not the kind of things that people know we write songs about that was sung about Venus flytrap on the the new album? The caxtons looking at stuff. He's also lyrics without taking from the comedy responsibility newsletter from nineteen to allow. What happens real trouble? That's why we have some real trouble tracking down which issues from we talked to society. We wanted to try to personally written the lyrics from find out who was exactly so it was a bit difficult but Yeah so 'cause I was I was in the kind of response is around. Then I used to below the most pitcher plum with amazing on the. Yeah so it it. It's things I'm interested. Basically this like things in the natural world Although segments that I just just I mean he's me things I think funny. Oh funny ideas you know. I'm not just looking through the This list of song titles from your album thought Porridge. I'm liking the sound of when we will bakers and also British headpiece champion because one of the things that's Talking about had one of the things that you are on your website does say moustache powered two doors which is a reference to your use of brass instruments which I am also delighted by. I hate to pigeon holed music but it do you sort of put yourself in a particular genre difficult. Because I don't think it stunned jumped. Descriptions really scribe us very well so it's not that I want to be an agenda but I think saying specific genre people go. Oh it's going to sound a lot so I suppose it's like a kind of like a kind of psychedelic. Music whole a spouse. If it's so the closest thing I could say even dot no message really children genre what I love about it is. I think it's is kind of the sounds like a terrible cliche but it really is fun for all the family. I can imagine anybody of any age listening to this and watching the video and just totally falling for your eccentric and a delightful way style of doing things which is which certainly certainly captured me. And I'm going to have to go listen to Venus flytrap now because that sounds right up my street. We'll take thank you very much for joining me. I'm GONNA play For my listeners. The end of the episode. So I'm hoping that with loads of extra funds as a result you certainly want me over so thanks very much. Keep Keep what's GONNA be next. I'm just trying to think what other genres of house plants. You could have. He could maybe have a song about about arrowheads. Because that's why listen hear about Swiss cheese plugs. That's that's my top tape. She's patially fucking thing. Yeah Yeah there are a lot more than the people. Just don't have a whole album. That could be a whole album of this. But it's Israeli delight four and I'm so glad I found it and I think it's going to this. We're all having right now.

"Were doing it for a good cause but today we're going to lighten your load a little bit with a really fun episode because joining us is fellow podcasters. Jean Perron coming to you from on the Ledge podcast. It is a fantastic podcast dedicated to house plants in house. Plant keeping and trying to give you as much accurate and helpful information in the house. Plant world is possible. There's a lot of Baloney out there on the Internet but Jane is consistently providing wonderful content for house plan growers and enthusiasts. And I really recommend you check out our podcast. That's on the ledge. Go subscribe if you haven't already but yeah. This conversation is just a fun ketchup. Jane and I talk every once in a while and it's always great to hear what she's got going on all her new adventures in house paint keeping and whatnot and Just to talk to someone. That's just as passionate about plants as I am so yeah. Let's just jump right into it without further ado. Here's my conversation with Jane Perron. I hope you enjoy Jean Perron. We've gotten off of your ledge for today. And now you're here in the indefensible plants headquarters talking with us. Welcome back to the PODCAST. Hi Matt I'm Yeah it's great to be here. Yeah those that maybe didn't listen to the last episode or a new I don't know who you are. How about we give a brief overview of what it is you do. What is what I do well in mainly just pfaff around with house plants. That's a very technical term. Faffing faffing around over that you probably don't we do? This means kind of like pottering about with House plans. That's basically what I like to but my training is as a journalist and I run a podcast. Could on the ledge. She's been going for an incredible three years now. Probably not was Lewis as Hamilton defense plants. Been going since someone eight fourteen. So yeah six years. Oh Gee plant podcast. Og well so on. The Ledge is aimed at anyone who's wanting to do any kind of indoor gardening and I've done one hundred thirty episodes of all kinds of stuff talking to plant people testing things out onto in people's questions and it's basically just a whole heap of fun chat about plants which is what we will love. It is fun. I also the other thing to say is I. Also you also see my name popping up in various Mainly British magazines and newspapers about all kinds of things. I like to say to people that you know tried to write about things that you might not read anywhere else. Som- currently restoring a bit of research for peace for the Financial Times which involves finding out. How much people's ashes? Way Back from the. Yeah so that's interesting. Can you guess how much how much some when you get the ashes back from a cremation? How much that weighs two kilograms? Okay I've only gonNA impound. Oh well to imperial us as metric. Lots of science lab all day so when it's five to seven pounds. What's that kilos? Good question about right about that point. Two pounds two point two pounds so yeah so I was just amazed by. That's anyway so as writing a piece about how spreading of ashes can be an issue in public gardens and how it causes problems for gardeners but also for relatives. It's a difficult decision as to how to deal with ashes and how you can do it. Responsibly and sensitively so lights. It chart do something a little bit different from the usual. Oh it's the month of the year that we think about pruning are Xyz. Because I you know. There's always room for those bras type pieces but I like to kind of try to be a little bit outside the box sometimes because it makes much more interesting. Sure Yeah and I think more people as you know gardening catches on in house plans catches on and really just all of the media. That's out there kind of swansea with the same stuff. Everyone's writing the articles. Those different ones really stand out in. It's one of those things where I go into a garden centre or get emails from publishers than its oldest new book on propagating succulent. How many of those do we need exactly or you know. Houseplants that clear. I would be much more interested in a really solid piece which was probably researched about other ways that you can clean the actually. I think probably opening the windows the best way of refreshing the air in your house. I mean it sounds terribly reductivist book. That's probably true. Yup then candles. Don't have plugging airfresheners. You know Yeah I would say that which I but we have to be honest with ourselves. I mean there is truth to some of the stuff but there's also a lot of misinformation and I think plants suffer from that more than other walks of life just because of the amount of sort of folklore and mysticism history. They have with our species for good reason. I mean plant should be celebrated but yeah I think they suffer from a lot of misinformation as well. Yeah I mean. Plants are incredible but let's not attribute to them characteristics that they don't actually possess because there's loads of cool characteristics. They do have so yeah. I think it's it's not. That's not the main reason to have plants in your houses is they're going to provide some moment incredible. Co Two scrubbing mechanism. You know that's that ain't that ain't GonNa Happen Really You better off. You know as I say not. Not Burning the candles. But yeah so my my. My realm is widely. I like to to sort of try to. I just basically find things I'm interested in. Then find somebody to commission a piece about them which is which is really nice to live. Yeah Yeah and you do in such fun ways. I mean. I've read a handful of your articles but obviously the podcast is. What really exposes me to your world view in what's going on and it is fun. It is entertaining. And you are taking a nice change of pace. From the general guarding houseplant. Podcasts that are out there I'm not denigrating any of them. I think they've all got merit in their own way because everyone has experiences but you are really doing it in a way that speaks to me on a deeper level. Because it's obvious you actually care about caring for these plants beyond just having pretty things. I we're going to be a bitch fest. Then about other. Podcasts I was getting ready to throw some shade person in Holter corddry would never have cost any Shea I love. Oh I think I'm really people sort of ood. Have you seen this this new podcast? You worried I'm like no. I'm really glad that there's another podcast because there's you know I know that nobody is me and therefore I think is already being done by me. So that wild. I feel worried about other podcasts. I think is fabulous to have all these different outlets and things that you can listen to it. It's amazing but yeah it is a funny response to get from people and I hear that from time to time like Oh you worried. I'm like why would i? Why why do you need to worry about? Is it a competition? The more people talking about plants the better off we're going to be. They need that attention they do. They do exactly and you know we got to be out that kind of combating. The as I say that the mainstream media kind of really not very good standard of journalism when it comes to talking about blance you know. The mainstream media does pick up on plants and does more but at the same time. It's great for people to have this source information which is hopefully reliable. I say that I did recently just realized listener got in touch. Say That I've messed up. I'd mixed up to Spider Plant. Cultivars in my spider plant episodes. I was horrified. I know the horror the horror anyway. I've corrected that now but it's that's the other great thing is that. I love the fact that people can actually come to me and say you know what you got that wrong and I can actually say. Yeah I did. You're right sorry and put it right. Which is so refreshing. I'm not I'm not a machine. Do get things wrong wrong there. I think the other thing that I'm sure you find with plants despite the fact that I love scientific grounding for fats at the same time you can't deny that there are people doing things which shouldn't work strictly speaking. That seemed to work for them. So everyone's got their own little ways of doing things in the house flaunt world and you can try to go backs practice based on science but sometimes something just comes up left field and works for you so I'm thinking of my beefsteak. Begonia in a container with no drainage right now which is still doing really well. Yeah it is funny that Gardening Kennedy teaches us that all the best laid plans can go away. Sta Depending on where you're at your conditions in you've attempted and that's why it's really hard for me to navigate those houseplant groups's because everyone's having success for different reasons and it's really hard to kind of tease out. What is working in y? Is working for some and not others and you know you're having any luck with begonias already far in advance of any luck that I have not had with Begonias so there is in the pudding. I thought I've given my begonias everything they could ever want from this world and never did I think no drainage would would succeed for them. Well I didn't. I was on that day that I decided to put this beefsteak. Begonia in a melamine salad tray but I did and it has Yeah it's they've done perfectly perfectly. Well so that's great then they're very much thriving Yeah I don't know why that is I. Guess I'm I'm very mean.

"Everyone is as web savvy as they should be and avoid the sellers who are just making a fast buck and I would also emphasize that it's really great to get on board with plot societies. They've because they often have see schemes. For example the guests Naree out society the British Logical Society which we talked about last week in their spore scheme the purchase CACTUS and succulent society and many more they operate on the kindness of their members in swapping or providing seed. And it's a great way of supporting these societies. So do check that out if you're struggling to find some special seed if there's society you can join. They will probably be able to help you out. Some people have also asked why certain house plants seed seems to be just available online. It's a good question I guess partly it's down to how much seed to plant produces so if a plant is not particularly forthcoming in terms of flowering and producing seed that made the seed very expensive to buy an expensive to produce some plants. Just don't flower. That often and are very easily propagated. Vegetative leave from cuttings and so people don't bother with seeds all sometimes seed is only viable for a really short amount of time and that makes it impractical to sell so the next question is what am I saying this year. Well in front of me aren't GonNa Rag tag bunch of seed packets that I've gathered together some dropped on the floor. Hang on just GONNA go pick these up way down okay. I'm back so let's see what I'm so in this year. I've got some things that were left over from last year. So I've got half a packet of the bargain basement lottery mixture greenhouse plants. I'd never actually identified any of these. Were embarrassingly some of them went into pots outside. There's some abetting because there was nothing that really looked house planty as such that Germany. But I'M GONNA give this other go because that's a fun Also got some this. I'll got some top seeds Which are about lithographs Brumfield embers? Which came from the BBC Esus and the seat on? This is absolutely tiny. I cannot be seen him in the packet. But I've got a few of those too so I will not another laptops which is al. Campai- Bella catty and probably get about ten seeds there too so also got a lovely bargain-basement packet of Coleus. This is a rainbow mixed the classic combination on. This just provides cheap and cheerful bedding for my outside beds and any good plants can be kept inside over winter for the following year so lovely cheap and cheerful stuff. Okay what else have I got here? I've got alien polly Philo- I think these came from the BBC SSI. I know that chiltern seeds have got them but I think they may be out of stock. There that's the wonderful ehlo succulent Ehlo. With the spiral. Patent Rosette which is absolutely gorgeous. It's generous packet of about a dozen seats. There's some hoping for some success with that. What's this Oh Diaz Korea elephantine pace which is lovely cedar? She quite large with a sort of a fan type extension on it love. Codex as we know some going to be trying to say those if you're not familiar with the Latin This is the elephants foot plot that produces this incredibly wonderfully textured elephants foot resembling codex big swollen route at the bottom. I mean I realize I'm not going to be getting a huge codex very soon because this plant of course will require some time to bulk up but I thought this one would be a fun thing to troy. And what's under this Okay I got some random chilly seeds. Self say self saved Chile seeds which I will be so into Not but some of those will no doubt end up on my windowsill. So that's kind of fun. So that's what I've got to so so far this year. I think I've got some more seeds on their way. I think our way out of late night ordering so this may not be the end of it but for the moment. This is what I'm choosing. I'll probably get started on the coast first because it's really easy to so and has a really good success rate. I might wait a couple more weeks to do the CACTI and succulents. Oh One more one more CPAC it. I forgot this is from children seeds. It's plex trunk. There's mixed species so this'll be interesting because trump. I can make good house plants as well as being. Great some abetting apologies. The small tiny seat package her appearing from everywhere. The other thing I've got is chaired opposite than ticky lotter also from the BCS. Going to have to Google that one. Because I can't even remember what I bought. There are yes. This is a lovely succulent with lovely Pale. Yellow daisy like flowers. I guess the den take your arteries because the leaves resemble little teeth so that's another great cloth that I'm looking forward to growing. It's South African native. As many of these clones. Now to more of your questions. This one came in on instagram. Where I'm at Jane Perron from Benjamin who asked how much difference does compost? Actually make as in. Can You just use multipurpose and get similar results? Great question so do you need to splash out on specialist seed sowing mix as opposed to just using any old multipurpose compost? You've got hanging around. The main issue with using that regular compost is just the size of the bits within the compost. If you look at see compost. It's usually very fine. It's more like I'm gonNA use an analogy. That probably won't work to Americans now but If you're making a crumble the consistency of the crumble mixed before you put it on top of the of the fruit is generally about what see compost looks like some more bread crummy than big massive chunks whereas if you get something is a multipurpose compost that's can have quite large pieces in it and the problem for the seeds is that they can then just get stuck underneath a massive pile of something well to them. It's messy if it's a tiny dot of a seed and it can hinder germination. The other thing about seed compost is that it tends to be relatively low in nutrients because seats as they germinate draw energy from their own selves to to power that germination so they don't need a lot of nutrients early on in the process. Can You use multipurpose? If you've got massive seeds well quite possibly. Yes if you've got something. I don't know what the equipment would be in the house. Plant world maybe a palm seed. Were run a bean seed or something like that. That's really big. It probably won't do any harm to use a larger grain compost. What you might want to do is just pick count. And he really large bits will give a bit of a sieve. That may help the other thing to bear in mind though is the seed. Compost is generally quite well drained so that a the seeds don't get waterlogged have water hanging around the could rock them. Before they get a chance to germinate that can also be a factor in the world of damping off which is something that happens to seedlings now and again. It's a fungal condition where sudden your ceiling collapsed and just fall over and they'll be sometimes a little bit of visible fungus around the base can combat that by providing good drainage and also really good hygiene washing. Your seat trades with hot soapy water and rinsing before he began and also to some extent using fresh seed compost. So don't use last year's supplies by in fresh of waste lost as you can obviously use that as a moat senior garden or Mulch on the top of your house plant pots but don't use old compost for seeds so fresh compost. Ideally see compost is the best thing you can use and for certain seeds.

Houseplant Takeover with the RHS Gardening Podcast

"Welcome to the gardening podcast house plan special. My Name's Matthew pottage and the curator of our chest Garden Weasley and. I absolutely love house plants. I think I mentioned him a few times. I'm here before and for very very special one off episode. I'm joined by. I want to call them the Queens of house plants and Swiss Bank from gardeners question time and Jane Perron from on the Ledge. And we're going to have a bit of key cow talking about houseplants so yeah this is the first of its kind. I going to call it a podcast swap. Jane ever to you I can you explain to us about on the ledge and how that's GonNa emerged with. The rich. Has podcast today. Well it's a wonderful opportunity to have our listeners. Listen to a podcast and my podcast is weekly. Pool cost per house plants that I've been making taking since February two thousand seventeen and it's basically just my excuse to talk about house plants because nobody else in my family's interested in God. I just decided to start a podcast to provide an outlet for my conversations and also just as a way of being able to email somebody and say. Did you want to have a chat with me about gives Mary and actually have a reason to do it. which is putting on the podcast? So it's just a personal passion that's turned into a bit of a an ongoing thing thing and I have great from here and he's also become a reunites community of listeners. Around the world just great. It's really really good. And and I mean I see you as a bit of a current trend in house plans now. But I mean you've been stalwart kind of a real champion of house plants for years but you know pulling faces the busiest because I started to grow them when I was very young. And obviously I think I've sort of became known ernest houseplant. Lady tonight because of being a whistle looking of previous glasshouses glasshouse supervisor and then subsequently going onto gardeners world when and Jeff Hamilton was the presenter going up to Rutland where he lived. He really wasn't interested in house and so he was really really happy for me to take that over and I guess that's where I really got the sort of title of House Plot Lady House Plant Queen so we are going to start our journey into house plants. I should do some homework and I can see. You've absolutely follow the requests. We've got some beautiful bits of plant material on the table and some very nice photographs on here. Yeah so can you tell me l.. Can we talk a bit about a plan. That inspires your interest into indoor plants. Hopefully we'll see some images of it or enjoy my one because this is just in the mind brain but the one that I wanted to talk about was in Mali. Doc Surgery as a kid and other if you remember they used to be. This is way back. You use those colored lights and they would let your light with your doctor would lie up would earn. And then you'd be called in you put number up and right next to that. was this huge Swiss cheese. Plan the monster delessio which is so trendy now but this was like back in the day this was late nineteen seventies antes and it was just huge and it was going everywhere and they're rare real roots all over the place and I don't think it probably got watered reported more than once in a blue moon but I just sitting there waiting waiting for my doctor's appointment looking at this plant and going. What is it that I come from? Why is that in here? Not Spark Fascination for me and it took require a few years to get my first Swiss cheese plant but it was something that sparked off that interest in indoor plants. And they seem to you when you do see them are ending waiting rooms James. I remember one in the hospital for my hometown. And because they would normally grow up trees on scaling up any kind of structure. They don't need massive pulse pop studio so they can get enormous plants with a small pot roots everywhere and as long as like a corner Selena to or something. Just keep going. And if they've got the ceiling room the leaves get bigger AK- bigger and bigger and I do wonder what not to do with a lot of people who are buying these plans now. And they're buying them as dinky little two foot tall have any conception of what what they're letting themselves in for if they have this plan long-term because they can get monstrously large which is wonderful testing grace about plants. Though isn't it you get the small cutting or you get the small planet. That's just come in fresh. And it's the character that it forms grows older that really fascinates me Aneka so character for how about you. What was your elementary or inspired? Hold on back in the sixties. When I started to collect house falls at dusk us make me sound very old doesn't it? Most of them came to me. As small pieces of succulents CACTI Pelayo names busy leases from other people's Window Sills All they would hand me plants that they had bought an had nearly died. And that's how will my plants came to me so I would get brought along a picture of the candle handle cactus and you can see where it's called the candle cactus because it SORTA got all these candlelight sections it's the plant I still keep now is not Severi Pucci plant. It grows in the winter and my family along the plant we have and they always get it down at Christmas time from my window sill. Because it's very celebration debray shree it produces little flowers on long stalks to like grandson'll and they turned into dandelions. Who is maybe thirty says to me? We need to get the Dan Dhillon plant down waving stunned lines so it's like a Christmas decoration that has to come down in the middle of winter and joins us in the sitting room for a few weeks peaks than it has to go back upstairs again so it's still grow it that to me. It takes me right back things like the Mexican hat ply. They were the social approach. Things that circulated because we didn't have many places to go and Bali them in a funny sort of way garden centers or mass hadn't been invented back then. It was florist shops and private collections. So trying to cast my mind back to early memory. I spent a lot of time with my grandma. If you had a big collection of Palestinians and I was never as a kid taken by lot's of smelly leaves and all red and pink flowers. She grew them for the flowers. They're just wearing very appealing to me but I do remember this higher shelf in her. Greenhouse with these CACTI on and there's one acti- that particular drawn to I thought completely different from all the others and eventually years down the line when she passed away managed to get hold of this cactus which identified as fellow actors. M Roy I am always reminded me of it wasn't in a very good state was nearly brown all the way up and eventually I lost are still quite young kid at the time but then I came across a few years ago and a garden centre it was just in a mixed cactus trae. I was so delighted to see it again and I thought I will have that for my office window so that work because it was grandma. Got Me into plants and that will just be a little bit of my childhood memory. So I wasn't going to bring on the chew because it's quite fierce thing. There's an image talk show you've seen them before but that lovely red spine and quite a Bluey grey body to it. I prefer succulent CACTI in not into CACTI tableau of masses of smaller spines but something like that with the big fat red spines are quite sparse. I just find that quite fficials things. Yeah ed I mean you only need to like walk into a couple of times and I mean my mom would never want to the in house when I was younger. The grandmas because North People have net curtains everywhere. Of course terrible terrible problems with the nets it stuck on

PODCAST BOB founded and ran the nursery to B.'s. Exotics for thirty five years before retiring from the trade in two thousand sixteen but he still very much has an interest in these plants and he's the treasurer of the International Euphoria Society and has a very very impressive greenhouse full of succulents behind his home in Woking Surrey which is a few miles south west of London if your British geography is unlv sketchy. I've visited a couple of weeks ago. Bob was so kind to give me a wonderful tour of his plots. Talk about his obsession with these succulents and yes he did give me a few plots cautious. I love my job. I'm so lucky so as I always say to check out the show notes Jane Perron Dot Com as you listen for pictures and details of the plants. We're talking about and you can also find details there about the International Euphoria Society because you are so popular now and many of the things things that we call CACTI are achieve four years so it's definitely a genus of plants. That's on the up and I felt really lucky to spend an hour or so pottering living with potter.

"Not resell it. Okay. You may not sell it in your driveway yard sale. You may not sell it at your school fundraiser, you may not do anything like that with that. You are only allowed to propagate it for yourself. So if you buy a plant like that, and you get seeds or it, it produces runners say it's a patented, you know, strawberry variety or airplane plant whatever that produces runners, you know, it's, it's propagating all the time for you. So how could you not take these cuttings and route them? Right. You're of course. Allowed to do that for yourself. But when you start passing them out, and you start selling them, that's when you're essentially, breaking rules that he's good to know because these loans do pope up quite often, and Goldensohn to on, on drool Ross in with a beautiful looks and then causes confusion. But that's quite clear on as you say, it's if people putting a lot of work into breeding Plum, then there is an argument to say, well, yes, the work should be in some way protected. So those make sense. One thing that one thing that I wanted to ask you about another one of these loan words that I'm not quite sure how pronounce which seen coming up a few times, a Facebook groups for house plans is Indo. Butare. Kassian. You people is is that, right? People saying try using via and I'm thinking I thought that was gonna be. But it does sound like that. Doesn't it rooting home? But now back in the day when I was a young with in the world of how spots bruting home on came in a weed container had like a spiky top on it like a spice top, and it was powder, a need put debriefing cutting into it. And then you, you, you, you went on with you taking your cutting, but things things have moved on a bit since then, I have to say many years ago, I gave up using that stuff because I just came Glisin the things didn't didn't seem to make that much difference, perhaps I was wrong. But now seems to be a whole new generation of rooting hormone products out that do we need to use these beneficial. They worth the money, and what is Indo beautiful beautiful Cassie in the first place. Look good. You did good you set a correctly. So we're all call it. NBA. Hormone it's it's a hormone. That is naturally occurring in plants that stimulates root tissue, the new growth of, of route initials, or those adventitious roots that you see and routes within the main root system. So it's it's a hormone when you are taking cuttings essentially the game is you're in a race to route before you rot. Right. That's always loved. Yeah. Rueful you wrote, I'm going to use. That's always the idea is. It's the race in just sort of having that, as a perspective, I think, helps a lot of beginning propagators, because it often doesn't even occur that, that, oh, this is going to rot. If it doesn't produce, a route within a certain amount of time, then obviously, the plant really can't sustain itself. And so you're in the same goes for seeds to essentially, you know, you have to get them to Germany, before they rob because eventually that's going to happen. So it's really a race to see if you can get that rooting that routing activity to happen fast enough so that, that plant can take off and thrive. So. Oh, what rooting hormones such as IBA or gibberellic acid so G A? You'll see that also included in, in a lot of natural root, stimulators, essentially provides an extra boost of that hormone to that cutting to trigger it to produce roots faster than it normally, would or more densely. So if you are struggling with cuttings, or you're taking sort of semi Woody cuttings cuttings at take longer to route. So there's a bigger potential for rotting before they route may. Tropical houseplants that have slightly Woody stems can be challenging for a lot of people to route because they take a lot longer to route. So there's a more time to make a mistake with that cutting before it can actually route. So using rooting powders they also come in really nice gel forms now. So I do a lot of cuttings in my automate, propagators. I have these Aeroponic propagators that sit on counters, because I am, as most professional horticulturist are incredibly dismissive of all of my plants is survival of the fittest. Right. So I'm forgetful, terrible water. If, if you can't survive on your own, there's a chance that you may not make it at my right? Because I'm busy helping everybody else. So I don't have a lot of time for my own thing. So I use autumn automated propagators to take a lot of cuttings, especially cutting take longer to route because it keeps them properly moist for long periods of time. The Joe that you can use a really handy for that. Because the powder's aren't gonna stick to the cutting, but it can help you root things. More quickly. If you've struggled with it. Now, if you're doing water rooting, you know, where you were taking cuttings in your putting them. It's the type of plant that will successfully water route, and you can put it in water and let it route, then then there's no point in using the rooting hormones. Really? But if you are doing another form of cutting say into some other type of inert, media core some preformed plugs or potting, soil, or out in the garden, even directly into pots than rooting hormones can help you speed up that routing process before that cutting rods, and there are now more organic options, if you don't, like using some of this synthetically produced rooting hormones, so they can be beneficial depending on what you're doing. Good. Glad that we've got cleared up. I guess personally a bit of the school of hard knocks you and I just kind of think, well the. Cussing woods. Or does look. On my really important on more Woody cuttings or citrus roses, Woody your tropical houseplants, you know, things that have tougher stems that take longer to form a Callus before they can create those adventitious roots many cuttings. Have to close up and form a Callus. You'll see that a lot in succulents you know, when you see the recommendations to let your succulent sit out in cure and dry. They need to form a Callus over that exposed cut, whether it be on a stem or leaf and then from that, callous, often is where you will be able to stimulate routes, but that can take some time so for things like citrus plants, I often go ahead and use a rooting hormone because it can take so long for them to produce route. Sometimes that I'll lose half my cuttings before they route. The rooting hormone helps speed up that process and I and I get more successful cuttings. He's the the end of the game released it just get as many as possible out of what you're doing because, hey, we'll we'll need will bounce about three Doug, but friends do we all need more plants than then everybody else needs, more plants, too? So, you know, I think that, you know, propagation is not only a great way to just have a lot. Of very simple, low cost lifelong joy, if you will. Propagating is just so fun. And I think that it's, it's so rewarding, and it's I think a great way for people to have community in share and give gifts. You know, you were talking about grandma's, you know, Christmas cactus. Those plants are very important to people, and, and it's a great way to sort of carry on tradition. Learning to be able to propagate things yourself, and it can be a real sustainable way as well to feed your gardening habit. Right. So I think that there are a lot of a lot of great things that b-actor into doing your own propagation. Not that it stops anybody from buying plants. I just as many plans being so isn't going to stop that. But it certainly can help you stretch your gardening budget in your indoor plant keeping budget significantly as well as yes, be able to share your love of plants with all your friends and family. Thank you Lizzie on gonna go away and propagate some more plants immediately. Thanks so much to Leslie for joining me and hunt that has helped you to get a little bit deeper into the world of plant propagation, details of Leslie's new book, plump, parenting, and all the other stuff that she gets up to is detailed in my show. Notes Jiang, Perron dot com. And if you're a patriot subscriber of five dollars a month or move, and go and listen to an extra leaf number twenty eight in which I took to Leslie about airing what is useful for and how to do it. And then I give it a go on my husband's spin leader, sina plant on a on a it's risky and now it's time the question of the week, which comes through Julie via Twitter. Julie sent me a DM on Twitter to Jane Perron, and she says that she recently spent too much money on a large Calla, lily perfectly erect gorgeous in the garden center on as soon as they go home. It starts to droop. She's on to remove several. Stems and didn't Walter it until it was home for a few days. She sent me a picture of this Kennedy and it's one of the pink flower ones, and it does look like it's a bit tired and emotional. So what can she do about this calorie? Okay. The first thing to say is clear up any confusion about what this plot is Calla lilies. Usually refers to the genus, Zan Todesca, and this is where the confusion starts because some of the members of this genus all holiday, so things like Zonta desk, it Ethiopa that's a haughty Arum lily, which can grow all year round outside is usually grown as a bulk plant would applaud because it does like full of moisture. But then we come to the ten the types of zanthosyn is on these are usually referred to as Calla lilies. And these usually some kind of hybrid between a couple of different species of. Zonta desk.

So Dr essay on my all time favorite house plant expert. He suggests watering this one day Li when it's in flower inside. So keep that Seoul moist but don't it get waterlogged either? So it could go in a tray of water. Every couple of days also. But allow it to drain off. Don't have it's sitting in water indoors. And in needs an awful of light to it will take some direct sunlight, but not all day necessarily may be a west facing window if possible something like that would be ideal. Orna conservatory provided it doesn't get absolutely blasting halt. I think that's probably why Julie's plant has wilted a bit because it's got a bit too dry. It will revive fairly quickly once given some water. But if you keep letting it out like that, and stressing, the plant, and eventually in the plant will fail. Now you could keep this plunk going all year round endorse. But if you want to you can tell the watering towards the autumn, and then photog- will turn yellow and back and then the Reizo the storage organ, under the surface of the soil will just sit there until spring, and then you start Woltring again revive itself.

"What an amazing opportunity. Please do come forward, if you super shy and you don't want to say anything on tape, then you can always just drop me an Email with some words in it, too. Thanks for all the lovely feedback on the p two D'amoto episodes. It's clear that you really love hearing from him, and it was so much fun to do. I've got lots of exciting episodes in the pipeline. But if there's something you'd like me to tackle in the show, then I'd love to hear what that is, as I start planning for the rest of the year. So drop me a line to on the ledge podcast, gmaiLcom and tell me what topics you want to know about. I'm hoping to have an episode on pepperoni is coming up. Also, the long awaited spider plants episode will becoming but if there's any other plaza eat, particularly, like me to cover then do let me know. And I will add it to my list, because many of the episodes that I put out all inspired by listener ideas, because you guys are full of great thoughts. So please share your ideas with me. And you never know you might be hearing that idea brought to life on, on the ledge podcast before you know, it also shout out this week to mine. Listeners in Canada. I realized recently that there's another podcast in Canada called on the ledge, and I think it's politics, one, I was not too confusing for you, having to podcasts could on the ledge the other ones produced by CBC radio. And it's the scribe does a weekly CBC podcast, that makes Cisco and politics personal. I'm not sure what the vent diagram of people who listen to both podcasts called on the ledge is, but I would love to know if that applies to any of you, but I've noticed that not many of you have left a review on apple podcasts or indeed, anywhere else. So come on Canadian listeners, please frontal up and leave a review for on the ledge. I know you're out that all you Canadians. So go on do me a favor and leave me review. The Joseph flower show, what is it? Where is it? What is it about? Well, I guess it's probably one of the world's best known flower shows, partly because it's been around for a very, very long time over a hundred years and takes place in a very prestigious part of London in Chelsea the Chelsea hospital, which is home to lots of retired veterans. And this is really the show that brings together the criminal Krim of British horticulture to celebrate all things plants. The main show gardens outside. Well, there aren't many houseplants on display there. But go into the great Providian and the place is absolutely packed with amazing stands from nurseries from all around the UK, and here is really where the house plant aficionado can get your fix. I'd love to suggest to the RHS that they grouped together all of the indoor plants stands together. So that you can see them on wandering around if your house plot enthusiast, you can see everything together, I will suggest that to them because otherwise, you have to spend the whole time crossing this huge enormous white tent. That is the great pavilion, didn't how big it is. But it's it's flipping enormous. I can tell you looking for the relevant stands that you want to see and there are quite a few that all relevant for us. House plant lovers. I'm an is to speak to three nursery people for this episode. I we're going to start out with a chat with the lovely Andy of Andy's air plants. Now, if you listen closely to one lead you may have heard Andy mentioned before because James Wong and rob stock Vits two of our former guests are both fans and of four plants from him in the past. So it was wonderful to see and these I ever display at Chelsea and boy was gorgeous. Check out my show notes Jane Perron dot com. Some pictures, I wanted to find out for Mandy, why he loves these plants and what it takes to bring a beautiful. Display like this to Chelsea. Hello, my.

"This week. I'm kicking off with a question about plants for doc and poorly ventilated spaces, and then I'll be bringing you some more insights from my Dutch trip will be finding out why it's the Koreans who are the best at cactus grafting. And why smaller is better when it comes to breeding a garvey's, but first we're making up this week. So let's deal with our question. It comes through Fatima. She wants to spruce up the place where she lives, which is rented accommodation, and she's worried because it's got terrible ventilation and some areas, especially the staircase get very little sunlight, she's trying to find plants the conservative in these areas and will help to clean the air, but she can't find enough material or resources, she wants applaud in her room and the bathroom both have windows, but also radiators she doesn't want to get plants that won't be able to. Survive and she wants spill to take care of them. Well, I'm sure I can help. There are many aspects to this question, and it's difficult to know where to start let's start with ventilation. Poor ventilation can be a problem for some house plants that are likely to get things like powdery mildew. I've thinking of things like well prime candidate might be something like an impatience or Pagonia these plants tend to succumb to powdery mildew mill g which looks like a kind of dusting of white on the surface of the leaves. It's a fungal infection. And this often happens when the plant isn't getting enough air circulation. So I'd have those kind of plants if you want to improve ventilation. Well, of course, you can always open a window. I guess on a staircase. That's not so easy. You can also introduce some fans into the environment. Just to keep the air moving make sure they're not trained on the plants, but on the in-between. But I wouldn't worry too much about terrible ventilation in terms of a lot of the common house plants, which will be more troubled by drafts of cold de than they would be by stagnant. In fact, some houseplants might actually help to improve the air quality, which is something that you're ofter. I should say upcoming episode which is going to major on this issue how to improve air quality with house plants, and I'm talking to researcher who's been studying this looking at how the volatile organic compounds. In other words, air pollutants can be removed by house plants, or at least some house blondes and also how CO two carbon dioxide can be processed by house plants. There's a lot to it. That's why I'm dedicating an whole episode to it. But basically, one of the things you should bear in mind is that a lot of those activities of removing pollutants and CO two only happen at quite high light concentrations. So. So in Fatma's dark corners of her flats or -partment, she's unlikely to find that the plants are doing a massive amount. In terms of cleaning up the air. I think you've gotta plump for the real toughie of the house plant world. I hasten to go on again about aspe- districts, in fact, just to say if you do want to him he took a bit more about aspe- districts again Choon into the hot house podcast, which I'm featuring on this week. I'll put the link in my show notes or just Google hothouse. Jane Perron and you'll find me there. It's a chance for me to bang on about my favorite topics with lovely Leah Chana. Do you recommend hothouse as a fantastic Plotti pod? So do check that out. Although you don't have to starve episode, of course, anyway back to question. Yes. Aspe- district would be good in this kind of environment because they applaud that survived the terribly polluted air of the Victorian home. So they will be absolutely fine in. The stagnant air of your place fat my, and they also won't mind. The low light conditions much either try to keep the plants far away as possible from your radiators. The death knell of any house blonde. These being sat on top of radiata that dry heat will kill most things pretty fast. Interestingly peace lily, or specif- film is one of the best plants for removing VOC's and CO two from the air..

Ma that strange plot on the front of that cool looking book, I think this is something that will appeal to anyone who's ever kind of watch the horror movie and become a bit alarmed by crazy monstrous plants or as ever written off plants as being boring because actually this book is brilliant piece of work showing us. How fascinating plans can be the first thing that struck me was the rations. You did these illustrations yourself. I did Jane. Yes. I did. Is this are you a professionally trained illustrates was this a personal passion always painted ever since I was very small? I'm sort of something that runs in the family my father used to paint as well. And it's something I love to do. So I'm very fortunate in my job that I get to see a lot of beautiful plants in natural habitats. And I have this sort of burning desire off your I see them to try and capture some of that beauty on on canvas. So something that I suppose it's a bit of a hobby that I've managed to incorporate into micro, and why was it that you wanted to about weed plants rather than any other kinds of Plum, I guess this is the sort of.

"Anyone who's religiously listened to every episode will remember that? I gave you a kitchen house plant tour back in episode thirty eight, but as I tend to do a loss of the plants have moved around an about. And so I thought I'd bring you a number two of that area. Plus, some of my son room plants and bonus I'm going to be putting a video on YouTube, which will show exactly what I've got as well as talking about them. And where do you find me on YouTube, well, quite simply on YouTube dot com forward slash Jane Perron. But for the moment for the delight of your ears only, his me in my kitchen. I hope that my dose it tones manage to drown out the background noise of the passing rubbish lorry the dog and the clock ticking Housley, so you can focus on me talking about my plants. So one of the great things about this kitchen is all its north facing. The big belks window in the roof and another window or the back and an open doorway to the sun rooms this tons of light coming in the back of the kitchen. So it's a great place for growing so many plants, and as you can imagine I take full advantage of that. So on the window sill. I've got one of a five streptococcus growing the minute. They just at the end of their flowering period now. So they're starting to look impressive than they have done. But they just keep going and going and going these are big plants as you'll see if you watch the video do take off of these massive leaves if they get a bit miserable. Looking after awhile. And during the winter, they tend to go into a door period and stop flowering. But this is just the end of that peak period, and they really are easy to the cough. They just need water every couple of weeks when they get really dry and not be over water because that's the easiest way to make these fellows. Built and water way. I've also got to hanging containers on the wall. Now, the trouble I had getting these hung up is considerable which is why the bottom one is still a bit one. Keep because I den take it off dry to reattach it these are on Kia containers. I think shower caddies so they've got holes in the bottom. Now, I put some old rags in the bottom to make sure that no soil or water comes through to onto the fruit bowl below. But at this time of year, I've got found ops in these because it's too hot in the summer to have fun ops here. But in the winter, they are absolutely perfect getting lots of light, and they are in a nice area, humid environment. So they sit there quite nicely. Doing the thing. They should start to be flower fairly soon and every week or so I bring them down to give them a good watering. The other corner of the kitchen head over here. That's got the most plants is this shopping system, which used to be a doorway into the undiscovered. But is now a set of shows, and it's got a lot of plants on here in the minute talk. I've got a trough which contains three different plants. I was inspired by James warm to try this, and it's working really, well, so no drainage here and the pot is about twelve inches deep. I would say and it contains these plants and their watered probably about once every two weeks. If you underwater is not a problem, if you over water, you have got a problem when you've got no drainage on the left here. We've got a lovely poll Pelayo near records the watermelon. Begonia? I think it's called which is kind of crazy is not a Begonia is veteran plant is flowering them. Oh with this. Incredible spike taught with.
