I have to admit I just assumed spraying with the hose every few days—maybe more, like daily, when it was really hot—would be fine. I mean the burlap surrounding their soil/roots is pretty porous, and if these plants live growing in trees and on opuntia in Los Angles why wouldn't they be happy with what water they could soak up here?
Well I am pleased to report they seem to like this treatment just fine. How can I tell?
And over the weekend they started opening.
Since there are four buds the show will go on for a few days.
So far I haven't noticed a hummingbird near, hopefully they'll discover the flowers soon.
Pretty exciting stuff when one is at home day in and day out...
