@cyndi Thank you!💘😍

comment
ShelleySnyder

@KariSamuel It will loose every leaf eventually and be bare in the garage, I think they get this big for me because I take really big fat pieces to root, I've learned thru the years that the small skinny stuff takes much more time to get big and bloom so I don't mess with the little stuff anymore, oh and also I leave it in the water way longer than most would! If you swipe you can see this last winter in the house rooting😁💘😍

comment
columbiariver

Mine has shed some leaves. Seems it's hard to keep them watered enough in the clay pots. I repotted all 3 into the large orange pots I showed you weeks ago. They are all looking a lot less cross. I love ceramic for most plants, but not heavy drinkers. So far so good. I can't believe you have yours in a tiny pot. The roots were enormous on mine already. You're the Queen. The #queenofbrugmansia

3w
comment
ShelleySnyder

@columbiariver the are hard to keep watered, no matter what kind of pot you use, they are water hogs!!😂 for me I always put them in a fairly small pot cuz they seem to be busy growing roots so once the pot is full of roots then the plant will grow, so I slowly up my pot size. Oooh I'm a queen!😁 thanks Laura!💘😍

One of mine doesnt look so good might have to dig out and see if roots are ok maybe use some of the good soil that was brought over for another project. But it could just be lighting issue i did put another light in that room. Yours looks great.

@columbiariver buds will fall off, they fall off even outside in the summer, so that's not really unusual 💘😍

comment

@cyndi 🤔 once it's in dirt it needs to have excellent drainage, if it's cuz of lack of light the leaves will fall off all the time. But I wouldn't worry to much, once it goes outside for summer they come around fairly quickly 💘😍
