Starting to Flower

7-1-17 sounds good!
Around 17 flowers from buds to just-opened last night.
All on 2 red-fleshed DF plants. Plants survived the cold wet winter but with a yellow fungus on some of the stems. Pruned of the worst affected then painted on Biodynamic Tree Paste. Infection seems to be halted.
Some sun-burn on the stems, the plants face west. Tried 50pc shadecloth but the plants hated it and seem to prefer to weather the sunburn. Weird for tropical rain-forest plants.

Something wonderful to look forward to :)

Karla's plants are also blooming. The plant seems to be a bit different from the one I had and I haven't gone down the hill at night time to check out the flowers when they're open. Not sure if they are setting fruit or not.
