HydroSpike’s Shooting Star

This plant, the lovely Shooting Star, in all its white splendor and glory cheers us up here at HydroSpike.  This plant cannot be under harsh sunlight, and definitely needs watering in warmer weather.  If you are busy, on vacation (or holiday), be sure to set up a HydroSpike system so you will come back to its beautiful blooms.  It starts to bloom less towards the end of summer.  For all you married men, the shooting star plant is a perfect gift to give to your wife…she is your shooting star.

Cabbage and Watermelon in Fall 2011



The earth just yields beauties.  We planted the cabbage in a row and the watermelons grew all over this summer.  In this plot, we water pretty seldom, just let it grow and see what happens.  Not bad for low maintenance!
