This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEA curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Gardening.

Just because we’ve pointed out plants we’d like to have grown, that doesn’t mean those are all there are. If there’s a houseplant you’d like to add that isn’t on the list, you can still get credit for your efforts. Note: This only applies to new plants, not old plants you own already. The exception to this is if you are repotting it into a larger pot.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
Pot a houseplant not found elsewhere on this level of the PEA Garden Badge.
Do not use plastic, cement, porous terracotta, or styrofoam pots.
Plant it using any method that is organic or better.
Show evidence of the plant’s growth.





To document and become certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:
- Explain what plant you selected and what the benefits are (even if it is just aesthetics)
- Show the materials prior to potting
- Action shot of potting the plant
- Display how the plant has grown over time after planting

This is sweet mint.  It didn't really need a bigger pot but I think the dirt was getting old and I haven't found a good in the house fertilizer so fresh it is. Plus I wanted to have a division for outside in the spring.

All of my window plants needed potting up. I've got some succulents, aloe, a couple cactuses and wandering jew. I keep them because I like watching them grow and giving them away.
