The name of the plant in the last photo is Calladium.....the plant u guessed as balsam is certainly balsam......the line like patterns on ur basil leaf is probably a leaf miner........and yes Spinach in my case also grows very slowly...........no idea about the blooming period of flowers but I think we need to have a lot of patience in waiting 😀 and let them grow at their own pace...the only thing we can do is prevent them from having any infections.....
By the way lovely collection of plants .....all d best

@ Ushasoman - Yes maam, you are right, they are 4 cherry tomato plants growing in a pot half filled with soil. 

Basically I wasn't able to find a seeding tray so I sowed the seeds in the pot itself. I kept in mind that when the true leaves appear I will transplant the seedlings and keep 1-2 which are healthy. Thats what I wrote in the picture title as well 🙂 

 

Will transplant them soon 🙂

Hi Mrudu,

For curry leaves I had some suggestions.

 u can pinch the bud, then u will get two or more shoots on side.
diluted buttermilk is good. When ever I have spoiled milk, i will pour a little curd and leave it on counter top.Next day dilute it with water and give to all curry leaves plants.Curry leaves like lots of manure.
I have a pic of my curry leaves plant here.(got a small sapling from nursery)
 
Happy Gardening
Sheena

Thanks a lot for the tip Sheena, but I wanted to confirm. when you say buds, do you mean buds in the plant or buds as in Seeds?

I don't see any buds in my plant 🙁 This plant I got from a nursery, growing very slowly. If you'd have seen my album, towards the end, there's another plant slightly bigger. I hope that grows better eventually as that has a thicker stem.

I mean leaf bud - a bud from which leaves (but not flowers) develop.In your plant the top most part. Try in the weaker plant.

Thanks for clarifying Sheena, although in both of my curry leaves I don't have any buds on the top. Its directly those tiny branches which come out.

if you are brave enough. you can snip off the top end including 2-3 leaf nodesSmile.

I am sure new shoots will come from side.I did it and got branches.do it for only one plant.
