The crossandra plant come up in few days and is a quick grower. It can grow in full sunlight and the blooms are bright orange peach coloured. The aboli plant is prone to fungus attack which is seen as white patches under the leaves of the plant. You can spray water over the plant and bathe it, but usually I have lost many plants due to this fungus attack and transplanting so now I let it grow wherever the seed has taken root. With losing aboli plants I was afraid it may become extinct in my garden, but the good news is that as an old plant dies there are many new ones coming up and smiling at me!
