    Can you FLUSH them out with warm water? That is what I'd do if they were mine....Sad to hear that, hope & pray that you do not lose any. Betty :-(

    It's ok, already happened now, the excess urea basically will be broken down to NH3, what we need to do just wait patiently and spray with dilute fertilizer regularly, sooooon it will recover.

    Mabuhay!

    Thank you all for the kind words. Some of my plants did survive the aftermath of the EPSOM salt event. Sadly, some of my terrestrial plants are still showing signs of "struggle" to survive. Well, i have transferred some to my garden and the others i just repotted with new soil...and i guess its working.

    UPDATES : (something to smile about)

    my BLC keowie is in bloom again.


    something or someone did this to my orchid but i bet its the snails or those mice TRAITORS because i also see some bitemarks on the roots.


    BEFORE


    AFTER A FEW DAYS. Its a common plant in the area but it feels really different when it blooms under your care


    Just took the photo last night. Actually, this toad was accidentally stepped on by my nephew when he was about to open the gate maybe that's the reason why it looks upset in the photo. poor toad but they're all welcome in my garden.

    enjoy!

    Godbless everyone.

    @zainal, manilabynight & brutaldreamer....the toad said he's going to visit you in your dreams tonight. hehehehehehehe. thanks for making me smile.

    OT....i need help for ID of this plant

    I bought this plant sometime ago and it has a whitish coloring on its leaves which attracted me to buy it. Then my mother found on the underside of its leaves are 2 small pumpkin like "seedpod". The flowers of this plants can be found underneath the leaves...its red in color and minute. Can anyone help me ID this plant?



    Just wanna share :

    one of my roses : i apply 1 tbsp of each (bleach, dishwashing liquid, vinegar, crushed or chili oil) in a 4 litre container.... as pesticide.


    current state of my backyard...





    ----gonna be adding some flowering plants for the summer.
