Default Re: blue java...in a pot???

I've got one potted in a big tree pot, then I sat that inside a big party tub so it didn't need so much water. It's currently about 12 feet tall after cutting it back to 6 feet last fall. There is one main stalk, two second generation stalks(one of which is as tall as the mama stalk) and two or three third generation stalks that are about 3 feet in this pot.Since this one is going on four years old, I am certainly wishing for fruit this year! But I think I've sort of given up on fruiting it, I fully expected it to do something last year.
