    rbjong, is the plant you show N. mirabilis or N. mirabilis x ampullaria? Now I am confused.

    Here's a picture of my plant. Are you saying that it may be a hybrid? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Lam,definitely i will take note of your experience. I am watching the progress closely.

    Josh, the burnt soil are ordinary soil which the nursery people here burn in the open ground,as a cheap substitute of fertilizers for ginger,vegetables,etc.

    Cindy,i assumed it to be natural hybrid mirabilis x ampullaria.

    Thanks for the response..Robert

    Robert, you're right, there's some ampullaria in it. The hybrid is common with those 2 species across their range, which is broad, with huge variation.

    Lam,another factor i always water the plant frequently.The soil mixed is not compact therefore water seep and drain off almost instantly.

    Thanks Hamish for the observation.
