Next year will be a great year for me. I have about 5-6 that are almost at their height for fruiting and theyíre different kinds. There was a another Namwa bunch that I cut on Monday and it flowered in October. Less filled out of course, but Iím gonna give them a try. 4 hands. Here are some pictures of the first bunch

Yes! It’ll be neat to see your progress, especially on the praying hands! I’m obsessed with them. I bought a tiny plug from urban tropicals in June and it only grew to about 3’. It was really starting to put out some long leaves. Hopefully, next year it will take off! Here’s the one I cut on Monday.

We shall see. Mine was in one of those 2” by 7” tall plastic trays. I planted it directly in the ground with sand on the bottom and mix the medium with chopped up leaves, sand, clay and black cow manure. I plan on wrapping it with straw next year. It’s potted up in the garage now. I don’t know anyone in north ga that has fruited PH, but I’m sure in south ga someone has. They have such a long cycle.
