The cotton in Islamabad, grown in the ground, has not been doing too well. These were planted in a relative’s backyard in another city. When I went for a visit a few days ago I picked all the open bolls.It rains daily, so the fiber got wet and developed fungus. I took out the fiber that could be rescued and dried it. The bolls were small . This cotton didn’t get any fertilizer. It is still flowering and rains will stop in about a week, so I’m hopeful I will get more cotton from it.
My cotton plants have finally become active. They are flowering almost daily. Bolls have started to fill with fiber.
Cotton buds have appeared on my container cotton.
I’ve also grown basil , that looks like beginning of flowers.
This is the container cotton I’m growing on my terrace in Peshawar. I have 2 strong plants at day 80. They are developing reproductive branches that will bear flowers. Hopefully we’ll see some flowers in a couple of weeks.
I went to visit my cotton plants in Islamabad. They have developed bolls !!
I got lots of pictures. First the beauty shot.
Cotton flowers turn from cream color to pink after fertilization.
Flowers on the way 🌺🌼🏵
