Hello! Have a great Hump Day!
It's amazing how plants adapt to seasons. This season our another variety of Bromeliad plants have flowered. Though I've had these plants for almost two years, only this season did the plants decide to gift us flowers. What I did to help the plants bloom flowers: 1) Changed the soil; included animal manure, 2) Kept the plants under our Neem tree; because the Neem tree dropped all its leaves, the Bromeliad plants received good amount of sunlight, and 3) Restricted watering the plant; once a week. Also, the season helped! Well, the Kalanchoe plant too has tiny pretty flowers.
Someone had given me lablab (purpureus) seeds, and I had sowed one seed. That sprouted, and then grew to a creeper, which has our porch enclosure (iron grill) as support. The creeper bloomed flowers, and then has a bunch of beans. Well, I sowed the seeds late during this season. Our kittens are excited about all plants that I place near the enclosure; they jump and hop from one container to another. Considering these factors, I had my doubts whether or not the creeper would survive. Yes, yes, I'm glad that it not only survived but also has a few beans. :-)
I've been working at our terrace garden and land garden; hard work! Will post update later. Enjoy your day!
