Coral Vine

IMG_0517
Can you tell the difference between the two pots of coral vine (Antigonon Leptopus)?
There is no difference.
Both pots were germinated from seed at the same time. Received the same treatment, fertiliser and all. Only difference was that the one on the right (tall one) went through a few rounds of repotting (and discomfort) and grew to its potential.   However, I didnt change the pot on the left.
It was an accidental experiment which came about from my sheer reluctance and inertia to change pots. (When pot is too big, the plant dies from water log/ retention).

Lesson learnt?  Sometimes, moving out of your comfort zone, into a bigger pot – or pond, can mean uncomfortable new learning experience, but more growth opportunities.

Food for thought for the new year.
