Thank you
thanks. never had problems with cigar leaves, but last year had some deformed leaves on a few plants. I live on sand and am highly acidic stands to reason the cigar leaves. just put lime around all my bananas. thanks again
a few learned scholars call it a plant......

and 6 billion people would call it a tree

I root for 6 billion people
