Three Trees

I have been tending some trees behind my classroom. I planted three plumeria cuttings, but only one has survived. That survivor was looking withered and all the leaf-sprouts had turned black and dropped off. I decided I would keep watering it. It’s looking better!

See the new leaf on the branch at the top?

I also planted three puakenikeni trees. Also only one of them has survived. I think it will make it, as long as I keep watering it. Over Thanksgiving break, I spread some potting soil around it to help suppress the grass.

The soil also makes a nice water reservoir.

The tree that looks the best right now is the puakenikeni I planted when I buried Gus. It was larger already, which I think is helping it remain healthy.

I amended the soil around it as well.

    Look at you – making a tropical paradise even better. That’s pretty cool, Brad. I hope that they thrive!

    (Is that pop can growing into a tree or is it your watering vessel?)

    Did you purposely plan to plant perinials that all started with a proper P, and that I cannot possibly properly pronounce? 🙂 Pleasantly pleased they are prospering. Peace out.

    Water is the magic liquid. Good for to plant trees where you work. We both have plumarias now! Nice little circle of fun….i would grow there.
