Pereskia bleo flowering.
« on: May 24, 2018, 01:05:17 PM »
I have about 6 pereskia bleo plants started from cutting.  Now 4 of them are almost 5 - 6 feet tall.  For the past one month, almost all of these plants have produced flowers which bloom for a day and then they drop off.  What is causing them to drop off?  Is it due to any deficiency?  Another thing.  Right now, we are in the middle of peak summer.  Average high temperature is almost 100 F now. 

Another thing I forgot to mention is that these flowers are being pollinated by stingless bees.  You can see one sitting on the flower.

I very eagerly look forward to taste the fruit.
