I love fire trees! My first encounter with them was at Shell, Tabangao where my sister used to work when I was a kid. Fire trees lined the road going into Shell Tabangao's golf course and they were just absolutely beautiful. So when we went to Sonya's Garden a few weeks ago I bought a small packet of fire tree seeds. I tried to look for tips on how to grow one, but found none so I just went ahead and planted two on Valentine's day.
It finally sprouted on the 20th of February. I was so excited and took a photo of it.
And here it is a day after it sprouted.
I'm so far just watering it when the soil is dry. Hope someday it would be as tall as the fire trees I first encountered in Shell Tabangao.
