OMG How I Killed a Rhizome! Desert Rose Thailand Plant of Prosperity Adenium Obesum Tips for flowering Desert rose

Image
The Adenium plant , Prosperity plant of Thailand, Adenium Obesum, is for life long and grows for many many years and this is one of the important reasons it has been called the good luck plant or the plant of prosperity, was all I thought! The plant has its life, if not handled(watered)  properly or maybe also climatic conditions and seasons , environment are to blame...we lost our precious one , many years old...so yes, it does die...but we have its baby happily growing. Collecting seeds is thus really important to keep the clan going ahead. I killed a rhizome! strange, they never die and are the most forgiving plants, yet with age and improper draining there was root rot which I did not notice soon, and then it was too late...yet I also realized the plant had lived its life and wanted to give up, because those who want to live, some of my plants have survived the most harshest and most dangerous conditions and  pests and are still with me! flowering!

Love Birds Budgie complete care food play and health Practical Guidelines with Experience over the years

Image
Love birds love to feed only on seeds but this is unhealthy and makes them weak. Feeding of pellets once in two days. In case of dropping in the container replace the pellets. Check by hand if the pellets have grains or just husks even if the container looks full or your birds may go hungry! . They will try to bite when they see a new hand so try to first converse and then open the door while you are playing with them, still be careful of the bite. My birdie just pecks my fingers and never bites but the females do bite sharply!  Otherwise offer leaf and then open the door while they are busy to change water and food. Best way is to cover the budgies  with soft cloth on the folded wings and let them free for time out(remember to close all doors and windows carefully, so that they can play happily) Bajri seeds can also be added to pellets. do not worry of over eating, they will only eat what quantity they require. DO NOT KEEP THE CAGE IN WINDOW UNSUPERVISED AS CROW OR OTHER BIRD WILL BIT…
