    New plant

    Posted by Aly on 11th May 2020

    What a lively plant. Whoever nurtured my beauty a big hug and thanx; it plant already is blooming and has a strong root system ready for transplant by tomorrow, four days after letting it breathe indoors for a day and three days to allow it to adjust to California climate. So much better than the stick I bought at Home Depot that pretty much was dead upon arrival. Bravo so worth the live and care this seedling has received from the very beginning of its life
