For those of you who don't know, Mark and I have a pet plant :) It's a Hibiscus we picked up on our honeymoon in Hawaii just over 4 years ago. When we got it, it consisted of a little stick with two or three little leaves shooting out of it. And now, like our love, has grown into this massive thing. It has beautiful flowers, of which it has produced a total of 3 during all this time. The first was right around Millie's first birthday (two years ago) and then this month it surprised us with two more!
Here is Millie with Planty-Planty and its third flower. Bloom No. 2 died before I got to take a picture of it. As you can see, it is a very large plant (this is just a third of it). I had Millie stand on a chair so I could get both she and the flower in the photo. Does anyone know how I can get this plant to blossom more often?? I'm open to suggestions.
