    Dumpster Trees

    On a walk through my neighborhood, I found three little seedlings, bursting with new growth, shoved haphazardly into a 4" nursery pot, sitting on a dumpster. I did what I had to do and took them home with me (I left the succulent and monstera cuttings for someone else). Upon repotting them, I...

    Can anyone identify this tree/shrub/bush/plant?

    I got some seeds from Etsy that stated these were juniper. Doesn’t look like any pictures of juniper.

    Weird husk thing attached to one of my Brazilian Rain Tree's branches, any ideas what it is?

    It's oval shaped, one side rounds off and is closed while the other side has an opening. I assume some insect or something made it? Does anyone recognize it? It was attached pretty securely but I managed to remove it without harming the branch.
