So, Loyal the Spider Plant is pretty tolerant I'm beginning to see. That plant doesn't trip worth nothing. A whole hurricane came through and Loyal was just like...
But that's not why we're here.
Kawaii, my Hibiscus Plant has been so touchy lately and I've had to do a little digging to find out why. I walked outside on my patio one day and discovered these two random leaves changing colors out of nowhere!
- I'm watering too much ORRRR
- Not enough fertilization
Definitely couldn't be that I was under watering it because I watered it daily, sometimes twice day. I just assumed... it being Florida... it would dry out more often even with "Cold Summer" barely upon us...
But no, I guess the hibiscus plant can't take that much water in the autumn season. So to combat it, i decided to up the fertilizing. I gave it a few pumps of this liquid fertilizer for indoor plants and then I watered it until it started to drain. Then I left it alone for about 4 days. Today made the fourth day, so I went out and I'm happy to report that all leaves are green!
Every leaf is green and firm, there aren't any buds but I assume that there won't be until next summer. I haven't had anymore leaves dropping off though, I'm happy for that.
But I did more research on it since it IS about to get cold, so I think I'll be seeing a lot more leaves falling off anyway so that the plant can go dormant. But I feel like this might be an okay routine. I plan to water it about once a week. Loyal, I don't know, that plant is kinda hardcore so I'll just give it the same routine I'm doing for Kawaii.
But as far as m vegetable garden goes... I'd like to go ahead and start on it. But what can I grow at this time of the year? I mean, it IS Florida, is there anything that can thrive through the cooler weather? Aren't potatoes able to thrive in cooler weather? Can I even grow potatoes in a pot?
Time to get back on Google...
