Title: I must be going blind - missed my first jabo flowers!
Post by: Daintree on March 31, 2019, 06:55:08 PM
Don't how HOW I do this with seeming regularity - but I missed yet another flowering shrub/tree!
I was watering today and saw fruit on my jaboticaba, and I never saw the flowers.
I am trying to take photos of all my plants, along with a photo of the flower and one of the ripe fruit.
For some reason, in a 700 square foot greenhouse, where I spend at least 3 hours a day, I can't seem to see flowers that are right in front of my nose!
Aaarrgghh!

It means time for you to cull some plants.

They can be easy to miss. I've missed them up to the point of me stumbling over a few fruits on the ground.

Missing is the most beautiful thing, some more wonderful thing waiting for you

Yeah, I may have missed the flowers, but at least I found the fruit still on the bush!  I routinely find my pitangatubas on the ground...

Always with Pitangitubas!
