You're welcome @gd. And just a reminder... Use the @username instead of hashtag when tagging a person on a message (so they receive proper notification and can respond 😉👍) Even though having my own hashtag IS nice 😎 😌😄

Our 4 year old #custardapple plant has not borne fruit for 2 seasons now. There is profuse flowering, but after blooming, they wither away. In the pic, you may note healthy buds in between and behind the withered flowers. The plant is in a 24"X24" planter, in #NewDelhi, #India. Please suggest an organic solution.
