WOW!

Beautiful flowers. ....can't tell much about the trunk or branch structure but the floral display compensates quite well. I've never been able to get that kind of total floral coverage. Any tips?

I will post a better picture of the trunk.
To get a full flower coverage I prune it totally 1 month before the flowering season, wich is (in my country) march and november. I also use humus tea everyday after watering.

Hi Luis what is humus tea? I'm a total Bougie freak, and can't get mine to flower like that.<sulk>

Nice Luis.

Hey Superboer,
  Humus tea, as I know it....from reading about worm castings. You pour water into your composter and retrieve the tea when it drains out.
The water then holds beneficial bacteria which gets transferred to your soil. Said to have little or no npk value, the tea, rather, the bacteria in the tea, assist the roots in utilizing fertilizers. It keeps the soil healthy, alive.

 But I'd love to hear the Dominican brew.....
Love pink!

Hey Sorce
Thanks for the reply. I heard of guys making a tea (worm pee) comming
 from winkler worm farms. They dilute this with water and have excellent results on any plant, veggies or trees. Thus humus tea is just water mixed with compost and drained.
