Water Hyacinth in Bloom Already
It has amazingly been only two days since I took the photos of my new water bowls with the Water Cabbage and Water Hyacinth floating plants here. And this morning I woke up to a fully blooming Water Hyacinth. Where did the flowers come from? The plant must truly be one of the fastest growing plants in the world. The Water Hyacinth blooms, strangely, look much more like small Iris flowers than the bulb type Hyacinth flowers I grew in New York. I can't believe how fast the flowers grew and bloomed. But, then again, many things here in Malaysia amaze me in terms of how fast they grow.
