This is it. Camellia sinensis, the plant that is harvested to produce tea. Well, not this plant, per se, as this little plant is my very own precious tea plant, a gift from my sister last June. I've been nurturing it, talking to it, watering it, admiring it, misting it, just about everything I can think of to coax it to grow. It has a few little new sprouts, it wants to do something big, but it seems to hold back. Okay, so Pennsylvania doesn't have the ideal growing conditions for a Camellia sinensis plant, but I'm hopeful it will grow into a larger more impressive plant! I'm tossing this out to the blogging community to inquire if anyone has any suggestions, ideas, recommendations, that I should try in an effort to encourage, perhaps even inspire, my little starter plant to grow.
