Bunga Bendi

Since I’ve never planted okra/bendi before, I was so fascinated when I saw the plant has flower coming out.

A friend told me that after the flower wilts, the okra/lady fingers bud will start to form.

But I was shocked to find the bud fell down on the floor the next day. At first I thought some insects or bugs ate the bud but after a close look, I just realized that the okra bud fell down by itself.

And then a new flower formed and this time I was lucky enough to take some pictures before it wilts. The bunga bendi looks like hibiscus, right? That’s because they come from the same family.

I am still waiting for the okra to successfully develop. Can’t wait to eat my first bendi that I plant.
