Mother nature must be taking a nap...

It seems my little Ciku Tree is coming along fine, but I just wonder why it's taking forever even to lift the teeny weeny seed shell off the ground.

After we've seen how fast bean sprouts get off and go, this is like watching a slug taking off after hearing the starter's gun. Yeah, not exactly reaching eagerly for the sky.

Mother Nature must be having a nap over this one.


Update: It's standing up this morning! Straightened itself. That's more like it!

It looks like some golfer stuck his club in here...


  1. This reminds me of my first chili padi plant. I put the seeds in a pot with the best black earth I could find and it took precisely 83 days to grow to a height of 1 inch. It took another month to gain another 0.5 inches before it died. That's almost half a year to reach a height of 1 1/4 inches.

  2. I'm thinking perhaps, this being a ciku tree of maybe, 15 ft height when it's full grown, it should take a little longer to germinate and get to this. So I'll just wait and watch it grow... Simple but beautiful...

  3. It will be worth it. You will see. But exercise patience a little :)

    Happy New Year brother :)

  4. Thanks Bengbeng. Happy new year to you too.
