The Cookara grow log

xmpraedicta(3b Saskatoon)February 19, 2008

Remember sam and his detailed catt bud photo log? I decided to do something similar with my Cookara Bill....not quite as detailed, but I took pictures of the developing spike at 3 points - hope you enjoy! This is a compact plant (6"), fragrant and easy to grow :D

I agree, those are some really nice flowers. I love watching buds develop and it always amazes me at what eventually can come out of them.
