If you recall, I was concerned that the angled luffa plants were not looking very healthy after the bout of haze in June. I honestly thought the plants were going to plant heaven because they looked so tired and dehydrated.
Well, the good surprise is that TLC has apparently helped. I’ve been pruning off the dead and dying leaves regularly, as well as giving the plants a weekly fertilizing from whatever is in my arsenal – something different every week. The plants have responded well, and began to produce more flower buds, although the leaves still don’t look that happy to me.
My reward yesterday was finding this new fruit growing – already looking bigger when I took its photo today. I love how fast these fruits grow!
The next generation is already on its way – I sowed new seeds and now have a pair of seedlings growing rather rapidly. I must remember to transplant them this weekend or else they will get stunted in the little growing cups…
