Creativity with Mother Nature
In the meantime, I hope you will indulge me as I share some photos from my Real Passion (no, they are not X rated photos of my husband LOL). I'm a Dirt Person! Though working diligently in the garden has not been possible this year, all the container plants are blooming, and the indoor plants are happy.
Have you ever seen a Philodendron bloom? This one did, as have others over the years. Normally, this specie will not bloom until matured to a good 7-10 years. However, I learned a trick four years ago, quite by accident.
The bloom on this particular cutting is long past. The "cutting" is now 3 years old, standing 5'6"tall (1.7 meters). Greeting visitors as they enter the foyer, he proudly stands guard in front of the 10' foot tall ficus tree, which is also regularly pruned. Here is the "cutting" at 3 years old:
Always Yours and Lots of Hugs, of course,
