Who do you think will win?
Not soliciting any advice, just wanted to offer a butt for some joking around. Kind of backwards like jeopardy, or when they have those "funniest caption" contests. Here's the punchline, what's the joke? (So please refrain from opinions like "I don't think the ______s will do well like that..." I have plenty of material to play with and am not worried if some don't make it.) This thread is just for goofing off but I will post some pics occasionally so our collective curiosity can be satisfied.
I put this together for a friend who never leaves the house except when I take him to the store. He liked the idea of a bucket, very masculine. He's got a west-facing covered porch for summer and west windows available for winter. This idea came to me when I found myself indecisive about a particular plant to pot up for him. Then some combos started to sound good and then it occurred to me that since I visit once per week, I can make it an experiment. This plant will only be watered on Friday evening when I visit. At home, I'm always convinced most of my plants need water at least twice that often. Maybe they do, but I think I will find that my plants are comparatively overwatered even though I currently think they are not. (Maybe I need more annuals to deadhead.) And yes, I will tell him about the experiment so he can comply and not feel responsible for any casualties.
In extreme-drainage mix of mostly mulch, all fast-growers that would rather be skipped than overwatered, Sans, plain green spider, Tradescantia zebrina, Callisia fragrans, Dracaena marginata 'tricolor, and 2 cane Begonias. I'm sure all of it will grow fast enough to be extremely entertaining for him but eventually some will be crowding others.
So... who do you think will win? My money's on the Callisia since even if the Sans pushes it out of the pot, it will keep growing as long as 1 root stays near the pot.
As a caption, I might say "Jane Doe worried she might be taking square foot gardening a bit too far..."
