hahaha, no lah, I did not lean over the railings, I no guts to do that either. I filmed using the mobile phone with one hand.

I sowed a few seeds into one pot, pot size approx. 20cm in diameter

hi Jen,

Need some advice.

I am contemplating on planting but what would be the easiest to start with which won't take a very long time to yield result?

How come I can't load the pic by clicking on the link by iPhone ? Hm... Will try again later by Pc.

May I ask how long did the flowers take to blossom ?

They r morning glory, grew from seeds (bou from NTUC). The seeds sprouted very quickly, think was 2 days. Took some day to start flowering. If I am not wrong, I planted in Dec last year. Once the plant matures, the flowers just come n come :wink:

How u doing these days?

I m reading this book The Explosive Child, to help manage my standards with ah boy.


:) thanks. I'm doing fine. Just been realigning my priorities and focus...like rearing a few caterpillars that have infested my tangerine, nourishing my dying blue butterfly pea and hey! The leaves have since turned from sickly pale yellow to dark green and many pretty blue flowers. Gonna sow the seeds when the pods are ready. I don't when though. I've no experience :p After painstakingly cleaning off some sorts of white mites and their ivory eggs all over my pots of adeniums every now and then, I finally see blooms :D

Think I'll check out the book too.. See if it's a case of explosive mum imposing on explosive kid :wink:

P/s: my morning glory is infested with white flies beyond hope. It's sayonara...

I only tried chilli plant (takes a while as I buried the whole chilli in the soil), tomato plant (grew from the seeds of a halved tomato buried in the soil, only leaves n flowers, failed at producing fruits), money plant (cut a portion from the matured pot, stucked into the soil of a new pot, it just took off from there on its own) and the morning glory plant. Those unsuccessful attempts at flowering plants - cant remember their names.

I am waiting for the morning glory to die out on its own so that I can try again with a trellis and with a rectangular pot.
