It's more like 16-17 months later for this picture, but you get the idea right?

I removed the yellow leaf and placed it where it should get more sun.
Hope it reacts well. I hate how they shipped it. The other three leqves were a little bent. One is almost healed.

Wow nice plants. I cant tell but are they in pots, or in the ground with some protection?

AMAZING!!! How long did you leave them in pots before putting them into the ground??? Is that the water wrap things that are supposed to help retain heat?

Here is an updated look at my plants.
I placed them in better sun, so I think that will make a difference.

Take a look.





My small fig plant is there as well if you're wondering what that one was.

My SDC have grown three leafs each since this post and my basjoo plant has grown 2, and my second basjoo plant has grown one with another on its way.
It is getting very cold here in MA, but they are slowly continuing to grow.
All four of my plants are still looking very healthy.

When I look at my room now there are tons more pots and plants. My banana plants are still doing well. My basjoo leafs are still coming out somewhat narrow, but the plants do look healthy. Oh well, hope the continue to grow.
