That is a good idea to keep my patupi in a container next summer. My plant didn't like being in the ground and the transplant shock caused more problems than it was worth!
How tall is your plant after 2 years?
Eric ....I find it amazing your VC got a flower this year ...me ....mine has never been a great performer .
But it has awesome wide tropical foliage. You are truly rocking it up north.
My plant is a 6+ footer with leaves that make it 12+- feet in a 12 gal landscape container.
Ty Taylor has some epic photos o
f this plant grown in a non tropical zone......with those elusive fruits...
For clarification...plants that will flower for me in a predictable fashion are orinoco ,basjoo....but my VC just stops when the temps hit 65-70.
However I keep on truckin.....
