For a while Jeff had some mix-ups due to some vandalism to his garden at a church property and I think this might be some other unknown as what Jeff has established as California Gold usually fruits at 5'-6' tall. Not that it really matters, other than maybe it will be harder to get yours inside!
Mine has only ever gotten 5'-6' when the pot is included.. when you say pseudostem that is not including the leaves hight right??
I'm hoping that with the larger pot it will be able to get larger and maybe flower.. I had it in ground a few yrs back but it was only one summer.. otherwise it has had to live a rather restricted root bound life...
Sure would be nice to know for sure what it is.. I have given 3 pups out as CGs.. I hope I have not lied to friends about it's ID..
How would I know for sure if it is a CG or not?? Guess I need to contact friends and let them know it might not be a CG..
