My son found a seed in his stash so I showed him how to put it between two pieces of wet paper towel to see how it germinates. This was mid May, way too late for NYC’s growing season. After a flowerpot too small, poor soil conditions, miracle grow fertilizer (at first) and only about 6 hrs direct sunlight, I nursed Mary to her current state. Now about 2/3 of the fan leaves have fallen and there’s a whitefly problem I’m dealing with. So now I’m wondering if harvest time is near enough to end the budding fertilizer and begin flushing. Here’s is a few images of Mary’s current state. Sorry for the less than perfect images but a breezy day and $20 micro camera makes my creativity difficult.
I’d appreciate any foresight as to how long to proceed with Mary’s later stages of bloom.
Many thanks and be well…elliot
