Little BloomsSunday, January 31, 2010
Earlier when I saw the 'little bird flower' plant (read more in my earlier post) for the first time, I must admit that I didn't think much of it as I thought it's merely another plant that would be popular for just a while. But as Chinese New Year is drawing closer, this plant has suddenly attracted a lot of attention.
Well, after growing this plant for a few months, let me share with you the good news... my plant has been producing 'bird flowers' non-stop!
The other little blooms are the Portulacas. Although they are not that 'photogenic', their colours are bright enough to catch anyone's attention :-)
The Torenia meanwhile is the most faithful! They never fail to show up :-D
And among the seeds that I have sown earlier (see my post), the Gomphrena has become the champion. Its seeds easily germinated and grew fast and nice. I only need to prune it once to ensure the plant grows bushier and bigger flower bracts. Currently there are lots of light purple flower bracts.
Finally (which is also rather embarassing), my Zinnias did not flourish well. The plant did not thrive well at all. The rain kept pushing the plant to rest on the soil when the plant was young. Well, I can forget about the Zinnias for now ;-)
