    Default Help!!! Flower appears to be dying.

    This is a Bl Petite Star. Plant was healthy as well as stem/bloom. But in the last few day the bloom started to look ill. It looks like it was starting to droop and then I saw the two indentations on the bloom. I hope it will stay healthy enough to allow for blooming. It would be disconcerting if it doesn't. The plant itself appears to be healthy. By the way the newer buds do not look like they have a chance to grow.Name:  IMG_2642.jpg

    This look like some little sucking critter (bug) got ahold of it to me. Thrips or something maybe?
