 Disease, pest seen in Brahma kamal plant! Sausserea Obvallata Epiphyllum Oxypetallum has been growing healthy with long elongated leaves and tiny emerging fresh leaves, with my serious mistake of taking them under direct rains and also some over watering...they have gone limp and thought I am immediately trimming the sick parts, what is aw today was thick emerged swollen parts, mites, pests , a disease, OMG, my Brahma Kamal plants are sick!!!

 With growing plants for more than ten years, in my terrace garden I had never had so much trouble growing any plant! All my plants love me so much and of course tolerate my erratic gardening actions and yet give me so many happy blooms!

Not the Brahma Kamal Sausserea Obvallata Epiphyllum Oxypetallum...I think the more I am caring the more it is eluding..this time I was shocked to see these pests disease on such healthy thick leaves of the Brahma Kamal plant. Tried to wipe these but they are embedded in the leaves.
 Is it the reason after adding some feeding...I usually avoid adding any feedings but got tempted to add the ready mix from the plant nursery and well they seem to get angry!
I don't know what went wrong but my earlier Brahma kamal plants used to grow out in the open terrace garden, I had to shift them because of bugs and caterpillars who feasted on the fleshy leaves and left holes in every leaf.
The Brahma kamal plant suddenly started to dry... of the many plants growing in small pots the edges began to dry and then more of them. I think it was the strong sunlight in the open, the evening sun which gives its full blast to my terrace garden. I have trimmed the dried portions and hoping they pick up growth fast!

My Brahma kamal plants enjoy morning sunlight and are growing on a window sill. Hoping they will recover soon and meanwhile the garden this time is at its best, with huge blooms of allamanda,

 Oh so totally agree when you see a beautiful garden do realize that it is the effort and hard work of the garden!
