The picture on the left was taken in end October. The photo on the right was taken in August (2 months earlier). The flower petals were getting lesser.
This photo was taken back in March (7 months earlier since Oct picture). The flower development was quite complete and full at that time.
Immediately I altered the soil and changed my method of fertilizing. The result after 2 weeks was astounding. Not only the leaves were developing well on existing buds, there were new buds emerging from stronger stems. This is excellent sign of recovery. For the past couple of months, there were never any new shoots coming from the main stem. This time, just a little change made such a dramatic impact.
I will explain on the fertilizing part in my next feeding the soil series postings. At this moment, I wish to show you some of the pictures taken recently.
