I have enough challenges figuring out what the plants want. Today I am just going to be happy for my temporary success in making one happy. After working for over a year to get this vine enough sun, food and water, it is now rewarding me with the coolest blossoms.
Have you had any plant success lately - in the office or at home?
I bought this on a chance from Logee's even though I knew it would take at least four hours of sun every day. It lived at home, growing but not thriving in a window with morning sun. It came to the office, where it got a brief blast of direct southern sun. It even temporarily lived on a rooftop!
It was only after our most recent move that it got everything to make it happy - four hours of warm sun, no harsh wind, a bit of humidity. It settled right in and within two months put out these blossoms that open and die one by one, like a slow-moving string of Chinese firecrackers. We quickly realized that a healthy plant was a good sign for us as well; we were enjoying more sun along with the plant.
