mine is so bowed. plus i always thought i did a bad support post job. it was never on real tight, just enough it might catch a fall.
but, NOW, and with more flowers coming... yikes.
i tightened it up and i could feel deep in the bow... yes, that could snap!???

is that how they are if you broke one, would it go “snap”! ? or would it bend like more rubbery plant? i think it would go SNAP.

i’m sure _not going to try to find out!!!!!!

It sure does like having its picture taken, doesn't it? One of those superstars that loves the paparazzi.

flowers are beginning to fold.
6 blossoms to open.
i lost count at 28 buds total.
3 beginning to fold.
going to go back to MSU food (from Better-Bloom), very soon. —perhaps ‘it’ will sustain old flowers better, perhaps not. —maybe my dosing (as directed) was too small.
i suppose, once they’re mostly gone, i’ll cut some branch, like i did (unknowingly) last time, and see if i can encourage a new branch, like before.
