Plant Review : Cuphea

No Judgy! Just plain reaction and advice about "Cuphea Plants".

Just a note; I’m not saying that the Cuphea plant is a worthy plant to grow. I’m specifically discussing about Cuphea plants that’s been twisted to shape and places in a tiny pot. Pretty to look at but not recommended to buy.

🌳 Cuphea is a bush and not a tree.

Yes, pwede bonsai pero not sure how long it will live (will answer this later).πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

🎍Indoor bonsai *daw*

Watched several vids about this, hindi siya total *indoor bonsai* basta nasa lilim masaya na siya. Nung nasa loob siya ng bahay nagwrinkle ung leaves niya (malunkot ung halaman). 😣 And yes nasa tabi na sya ng bintana with morning and afternoon sun. And yes lagi din siya na sprayan ng tubig. Nung nilabas ko (nasa lilim) nabuhay uli ung leaves nya. ✨

πŸ’¦ Spray spray lang

Based on the care card ganun lang daw dapat. Pero based naman sa vids na napanuod ko, dapat naka water tray 🌊 confusing much πŸ‘½Btw sosyal tong halaman na to, ung tubig ginamit ko pang spray sa knya e yung distilled water ng carnivors ko. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

🌿 Repot

Nag one-on-one kami ng dad ko kagabi dahil sa halaman na to. Dad ko kasi bonsai master. Tagal daw niya tinititigan tong Cuphea, and sinabihan akong i-repot sa malaki laki. Ang assesment niya walang roots to so 50-50 na mabubuhay. πŸ’€Kanina (kakatapos ko lang magrepot) totoo nga sabi ng dad ko wala nga tap root yung halaman. Saka iilan lang ung maninipis nyang roots (actually mabibilang sa konti). Kung hindi ko to nirepot baka 1month lang life span nito or wala pa β€” again tulad dun sa other video I watched at youtube. πŸ‘»

πŸ’Έ Price varies

Oo walang SRP. LOL πŸ™ƒ
Etong nabili ko P600 β€” eto na ung pinaka pungok nila. Though same size na nilalako lang sa trapik nasa P1600 (may nakita ako kahapon, tinanong ko out of curiousity). 🀑
