RE: A great trip


Currently, it is too thick with the open blossoms to use a paper towel roll
or a toilet-paper roll tube.  I've rolled several layers of a newspaper
around it to form a tube.  I'll let you know if I've gotten to it too late.
Thanks!

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

Or- you could slip a toilet-paper roll tube over the plant and then the
bloom stalk will stretch toward the light.
