Miracle Pansie!

Miracle Pansie!

This little Pansie has been growing in a hanging basket that used to house a variegated English ivy that died last year. The soil had been prepped with compost, paramagnetic rock powders, and sugars prior to it's transplanting.
Today, August the 15th, broke the all-time record for days above 100 deg. F here in Waco, TX and this little Pansy is STILL ALIVE! Struggling, but still showing some vibrant new green growth.

This breaks last year's pansy "test plant" by TWO months! I have never had one survive into late August and still be viable for the next fall season.
How awesome!
