水梅, Wild Water Plum

Like seasoned parachuters, the small fuzzy seeds of our Wrightia religiosa, the commonly known Siu-mei bonsai plant, cracked open its 2 harden green bean-like pod and scattered its seedlings by going with the breeze! We had waited all 7 months for its ripening!

Such pretty sight; i caught a handful of them flying off :)

Is your Water Plum flowering? It should flower all year.

Besides being sun-loving, the plant prefers moderate watering. We water only when it withers from dryness - florishing much after drought. And Sis method of removing most of its leaves by hand plucking further triggers the plant to bloom exceedingly!
