ng, has shiny new leaves and it flowers. It is outside for summer. I notice that the woven “tree trunk” has 4 in up/down scrap es on it. Animal? This is the first time, ever, a fully developed flower fell off.

It does appear that something has been scratching on it! Likely a rodent of sorts. I could recommend using hot pepper sprays, or predator urine to keep away these pests.
