My indoor-grown 'Chocolate' morning glories (Ipomoea nil) surprised me the last two mornings with new and beautiful blooms! Needless to say, I am delighted!! 😊 These plants were started last November and started blooming the beginning of February. They bloomed faithfully for about 4 months, but have been looking a bit scraggly lately.
This was taken yesterday morning...notice the buds too!
I was also pleasantly surprised to find a seedpod hidden among the leaves! I haven't been hand-pollinating at all because I was focusing rather on getting as many blooms as possible, for as long as possible, but now I have decided to hand-pollinate the remaining flowers in hopes of getting a few seeds.
And this morning I am blessed with 3 flowers! It really made my day and helps to hold me over while all those new seedlings are growing. 😉
If you've never tried growing morning glories indoors, I highly recommend it! They are so easy, so beautiful, and will truly brighten your days! 😊
