While more than fifteen years with gardening experience, container gardening, I am a very impatient soul, yet with innocent love all my terrace garden plants, they do bloom and most , in fact almost all are happy with me except succulents. I just see the plants photo and immediately know what it wants! or what is its condition.
There are not always successes and I admit, I have lost too many succulents that I fear adding any now...the main problems is I have kept them together with the others. Strong sunlight, they don't like, too much water they repel from and trimming they don't need! so succulents are a different , totally aliens for me!
Now at present they are doing ok, they look dull, some one fresh leaf pops up at an end of a large leaves, but guess blooms are history!

I imagine how that time would be...when I see a bud..I would break into a happy dance... and another long elongated tentacle with heavy plump buds...I would be soooo happy...on top of the world...then waiting for the bud to grow, as days pass by the brahma kamal bud will grow larger and larger...and there would be so much excitement in anticipation for the big night...the night when this flower will bloom...with its majestic beauty and presence of heavenly attributes the Brahma Kamal flower will bloom in my home and there would be no words to express , except feelings of being in the moment, most connected to the Universal life force, and enjoying this bliss! and I would share my happiness to the world, doing the happy dance!!! so waiting for these precious life magical moments...hope the Universe blesses me with at least one bloom in this lifetime!fingers crossed ..waiting...Reading a lot on succulents, lots of blogs, gardening blogs, experiences, watching you tube videos, guess one day will succeed in growing a blooming a Succulents garden!
