The mother of these sunflowers gave birth to 35 seeds. Most of them are now growing. I just wonder what will happen if all seeds on this earth germinate. Likewise what if every male and female got married and have 10 children. What will really happen. Nature I guess do have safety mecahanism, able to control overcrowding, and with the concept of food chain, every explosion will be corrected and tamed.
I put our sunflowers into 3 categories.
- Category One: Five of them growing besides tomato plants and are doing extremely well.
- Category Two: Fifteen, occupying the same bed as their mother, squeezed between white chili and asin-asin. They are growing steadily, disturbed for a while by aphids, but now no more.
- Category Three: A solo, very close to coleus, growing exactly as its mother. Growing low, with yellowish green leaves. This plant was earlier grown in a pot, while the rest are enjoying the real dirt. As the plant is increasing in height and roots developing well, I thought it would be best to set it free. But the sunflower seems to enjoy the bonsai treatment while staying in the pot. It grows lazily as its mother.
I just imagine each category will have different size of flowers
and the number of seeds..
5 of them
beside tomato plants
