A Long Wait

I know I’ve posted a picture of it before, but my hibiscus bloomed!

I’m excited about it, because for a while, the plant has looked sickly. I thought it was getting too much water, so I cut back on watering it. But the last couple of weeks, it’s been raining a lot, so maybe it wasn’t getting enough water?

Whatever the case, it was fun to see another flower. I wish the plant would just get big and make flowers all the time I like I see other hibiscus plants doing here on Maui. It seems like it should be so easy…

The flower doesn’t look any bigger than before. Eventually, they’re supposed to be 11 inches wide!

    Beautiful! That color is superb! I think it looks gorgeous! Regarding the size -are there plants that take a while to get their bearings? If that’s the case here, it will be extra-stunning later. 🙂

    Oh! It’s just perfect! I love the color! Water is the magic liquid! My grandma would water potted plants and say…. “I just water the tops”…. she always had awesome flowers so I’ve adopted this method. In other words, just let the water puddle then quit! You can water more often this way…. but of course depending on the plant and its water needs, heat, sun, etc. Looks like you’re doing it right no matter what!
