Hawaiian Ocean View/ Ranchoes
To start off, I know it doesn't rain a lot and it's on an old lava flow. I could see myself moving there because I hate grass and would want my yard to look like a botanical garden, just plants and trees, no grass and weeds.
My questions are, do things like palms, citrus, bananas, and dragon fruit like the volcanic rock? Will they ever get city or county water to rely on?
I know that if i lived there I'd probably have to dig or drill into the rock where i wanted to plant something and add soil. that's okay. I feel like each of the plants will mean more to me because I will have to do more work to grow them.
I'm only 17, but I like to explore and plan my future. I'm my generations plant nut. :)
