So a friend from here gave me what was left of a Kratom plant. It was a two inch stump sticking out of the pot, with no leaves on it as his cat had eaten it down to nothing. The stem was still green though, and he said it was still alive. I took it home and put it into the back window for a few weeks but kept watering it. Finally it sprouted a tiny red leaf.
I thought it was finally gonna take off, but it was not doing much still, although it was alive. When I put my cactuses outside I brought it out too, and it reluctantly put out a couple more small red leaves. Did some reading and it said to put the plants into a soil meant for vegetative growth and keep the soil wet. I picked up a bag of Miracle Gro soil that my tomato plants are absolutely thriving in, and transplanted it into a huge 7 gallon pot as it is gonna grow into a tree (I hope) and I wanted to give it plenty of soil to grow into.
This is the result just a few days after transplanting. It looks like it is going to take off now finally! It already has a hole in one of the leaves from something eating it so I guess I will need to put some sort of pesticide on it as mites are said to be really bad this year. I have high hopes for this little guy!
EDIT: Well hell I was hoping that I would have no more problems with uploads and such with my new PC I guess I got no photo to share. Wharfrat I just wanted you to know that it LIVES! I will have the wife take a picture, hers seem to work better than my phone pics
