Japanese Aucuba Cutting, Transplanted

IMG_1886After months of growing in a round water-filled bottle, the Japanese aucuba cutting that I transplanted into its own container appears to be taking to its new home.

I’d let this cutting’s roots grow a bit longer so they were actually conforming to the shape of the bottle. But I’m confident that the long, strong roots will serve this plant well. In time, when large enough, I may consider transplanting it directly into the ground.

CONSUMER ALERT: Japanese aucuba has been reported to be poisonous, though the level of toxicity has been reported to be minor.

A very informative and useful website on toxic plants can be found here :
