Its always fun to find a gardening surprise when you least expect it.
I came home last night to find a surprise blossom opening on the Hibiscus in my indoor gardening area. It had eluded my notice somehow. This Hibiscus originated from a cutting off a larger tree, several years ago I rooted the cutting and it’s become a low-maintenance houseplant. Organic houseplant care can be trickier than outdoor organic gardening, but so worth it to see colorful blooms in December!I have been using organic Rapadura sugar as an organic bloom boost fertilizer for my houseplants.
That’s my favorite kind of holiday surprise, and it doubles as a Christmas decoration! Maybe this year I’ll string some lights on it.
After more than a decade of organic indoor gardening, I prefer my houseplants to be tough. “Sink or swim,” I tell every new plant I bring home. Low maintenance is a virtue next to usefulness.
And somehow it comes together.
