Vasanta (Spring) brings magic with him which seems to make the plants grow faster. I wish he did the same to my seeds too [SIGH]!
I've been talking about my mystery plants in my past two posts which has grown really well now. the pots occupied by them were intended to be populated by the most eagerly expected Columbine and Lavender, but I ended up with these.
Thanks to my instincts that I didn't decide to pull these out. Their flowers weren't so catchy at first sight
unless you look close to appreciate its beauty.
I waited not for too long to see these tiny lanterns hanging on the leaf axils.
Soon the entire branch seemed dotted by tiny lanterns.
The other two species were slow to flower but grew very fast.
For an Urban-bred guy like me, identifying a plant was really difficult and I had to browse through pages in the Internet with my lame keywords like five petaled,
and so on, to find so many flowers and plants, but as my luck would have it, I found the identity really soon.
The so-called weeds belonged to Physalis family! Three cheers to Tyra for identifying it!
And one among these twins seems like Physalis peruviana
While these lanterns are growing well, there's their cousin sitting in two other pots nearby.
But the new growth from the bigger seedling is slightly curled too. Am I to worry about this? Should I scream HELP!? What say you?
