Some Seeds and other things
So I kind of missed most of my mid season blooms this year but here are some misc. seed pods and other interesting plumeria things.
And here are some observations and other things:
this is a branch that the tree decided it didn't want anymore. It basically just shriveled up and fell off. I have seen this happen on mature trees.
JL cuttings Teresa Wilder and Cindy Schmidt Orange rooted in March drying out on the sidewalk. I had to rescue them from about an inch of standing water.
Here is a pump assembly i purchased to pump rainwater from my overflow containers to the Plumerias. I found a pump which came with a 5/8 inch fitting to connect it to a standard garden hose. Cut off the female connection and pushed it onto the 5/8 inch fitting. Then used an inexpensive ring type sprinkler to distribute it.
A Fish Emulsion and Superthrive Latte. A Plumeria Favorite.
low pressure sprinkler that i can just rest on the container for a few minutes and then move it to the next one.
Some sort of insect damage on a two tip Singapore Obtusa destroyed this tip. I removed the top two leaves and then took these two pictures a few weeks apart.
I call this one hair club for Penang Peach.
