This month, I was busy for a number of reasons. Sadly, both Acacia trees couldn’t handle the heat of Indian summer. Generally, I would publish the photographs but no good will come out of seeing a couple of dead trees.
I was sad for a while but decided to move on eventually. I do have another packet of Acacia seeds which I may plant next year during spring. Alright then, time for updates on my other plants and trees that are doing well or struggling to survive.
The growth (above image) in Adenium plant came as a surprise. After giving it water soluble NPK 20 20 20 fertilizer for a couple of weeks, I observed a number of flower buds. I do fear if they can handle the Indian summer heat but time will tell.
I have no idea about the name of this plant but it has shown tremendous growth in the past month. Its branch grew out of nothing and is now more than 4 feet. Same goes for the other 2 branches. I will try to connect with a professional gardener to know the name of this plant and research more on it. At the moment, I have no idea what kind of flower will bloom.
Ever since I started watching YouTube to learn more on gardening, I was fixated to see the growth of a new branch after pruning the parent branch. Lately, I witnessed this phenomenon with my own eyes after pruning one of the rose plants that I have.
Eventually, I saw growth in all my rose plants. The above image shows the flower bud of a red rose. The bottom image shows yellow-orange rose flower that blossomed recently. The fragrance in a yellow-orange rose was less as compared to a red rose.
And finally, my first Bonsai tree – Ficus Microcarpa. Last month went terrible for it as I kept it indoor and the direction of the sun changed due to change of season. Placing it outside really helped and I observed healthy green foliage.
In the image, one cannot tell the difference between new and old leaves. Few leaves on left, top, and right are a lighter shade of green.
