Al and my friends..Mistakes I have made recently..
Ok, I am going to admit in front of the world that I do make mistakes and that there is no shame in that...Usually I come here to post all my beautiful plants, with perfect leaves, flowers and all, but I am also going to show you a perfect example of the phrase, "Sheesh, you learn something new everyday"..
I have come to discover that everything I was doing for my gardenia was just right..I provided the perfect light, the perfect gritty mix, the perfect food, and the perfect love my baby deserved...It was growing perfect and dark green with tons of blossoms.....But>>>>>>>Never ever forget to water a plant to the point of wilt,especially a gardenia or a citrus tree or you will end up with this in just 5 days to a week...It's my own darn fault..:-(
Here is my Gardenia loosing it's leaves and yellow from root damage..
Here is a lemon tree that was loaded with green leaves and flowers just 6 days ago, until the pot was accidentally under watered...COMPLETELY BARE!
I hope many will learn from the same mistake I made..We always talk of over watering, but under watering can cause much damage too..
