I planted a nasturtium seed in this container the last time I visited my mom in California. It is now blooming, even though the plant itself is still pretty small. There are also some weeds (including what looks like the beginnings of poppy seedlings) in this container as well.
Anyway, the only significance of this is that while this nasturtium grew and flowered in about two months, the nasturtium I grew in Indiana never flowered once this summer/fall, even though that plant has been growing for longer and got much bigger than this one. They came from the same seed stock.
I thought that nasturtiums were supposed to be pretty easy to grow everywhere. I wonder if I did something wrong that caused my Indiana plant to not flower at all this year. Or do flowers somehow prefer California over Indiana, at least for flowering purposes?
