I moved some bunching onions to new raised bed 8 late yesterday and watered them in with mucilagenous water made with one small prickly pear pad (5″).
I made 5 clumps from one, kept a couple to eat, and replanted in our hottest weather. It seems like a good test for mucilagenous watering.
This morning they are looking better than after planting, so the transplant seems like it will take. Onions are easy transplants, and I did want to shift some to this bed. Some these have bloom buds on them, and they look like they might bloom even though I transplanted them. The bunching onions will get a half day sun here.
I will make more mucilagenous water to give root support to a few more plants. At least I hope it is a support! If it increases my success rate with non native plants, I will count it a winner.
