Late last night I was talking to Ken in the office. My line of sight was on the plants but it took me a while to discover that there was something different. When I saw the big white bloom, I was startled at its foreignness and exclaimed at my bewildered husband, “OMG what is that? OH! LOOK! IT’S BLOOMING!” I never knew that this plant produced flowers.
So of course I had to show Miyu this startling discovery this morning. She excitedly proposed to water the flower directly into its opening and I gently explained that it would be better to water the soil instead. It looks so fragile. And to think all this time, I actually thought this plant was dying. But I guess I was wrong. 🙂
