Too much to handle for Ulam Raja.


 

The wind was pushing hard. It was too much for Ulam Raja to handle. A few branches had to go and the way they fell, almost tell us where the wind was coming from!!.. But the fallen branches are growing as usual....

  1. Bangchik the fallen branches are still growing? does that mean that you will just pop them in the ground somewhere else and they will just grow and set new roots? Some strong winds you must have had.

  2. Perhaps the wind prunning will stimulate new growth of the king's salad.

  5. I had to look up ulam raja to see what it was...how neat! So, it is a vegetable, an herb, and an attractive flower all at the same time? Very cool.

  6. Gosh those strong wind! Sometimes they just 'attack' with no warning. Sorry for those broken branches but glad that they are growing. You propagated them?

  8. Wonder if staking it would help during the next windstorm? Glad it seems to be recovering okay.

  9. ....Really? I think its times up for that plant. I suggest harvest as much as you can before the whole thing turn dried brown.

  10. Thanks for the visits and comments. Never thought, that this is wind pruning... haha..,thanks mothernaturesgarden.

    The branches still grow, even though they are just attached at the lower skin to the main plant... The shoots adjust its alignment, and keep on growing vertically with the fallen part resting on the ground. I checked, but there is no sign of new roots developing.

    Similar thing happen to marigold nearby. The plant bends and falls. But the growing shoot develop a U bend and keep on growing. They infact continue blooming. But marigolds develop new roots at the part that touch the ground.

    As to JGH suggestion about staking the plant... yea, it wasn't the main stem that give way..., only the branches.
