Corny between the nanners and the basil.

Beautiful pictures!!! And Cornelius looks so much like our Quartz, it's amazing!

Thanks Joe!

Those are Robber Flies AKA Southern Bee Killer. They probably would of appreciated a little privacy as they were mating but the fact that one was eating a White Faced Hornet made me grab the camera.

I'll see if I can do this properly. I put the pictures in my photo gallery just in case it doesn't work. Well, as expected, I can't get these pictures to show up on here, I think I'm computer illiterate sometimes. But I put five or six new pictures of my yard I just took in my photo gallery on this site you can look at.
This is my Indiana yard.

Stags are my other weakness. There are several other large ones around you can't see and the BIG one I had to cut in pieces to get out of my ex's yard. It had a ball about 5 ft in diameter. Now I have chunks just lying around until I figure out what I am going to do with them. I've sold off a bunch of pieces. There are also a bunch of other kinds of stags mounted on boards or hanging in the gazebo.

How long? It depends on how it is mounted. On a board, it will never get real big. I usually take a large wire basket and put about 4 or 5 plants around the outside. In a few years it looks pretty good. Don't expect anything big for at least 5 years though.

Sandy,How long does it take to get that alocasia to that size? Do you make it go dormant in winter or store in your greenhouse? Your place looks great!

Thank you. My personal landscaping actually doesn't look all that great this year compared to last year. I was way too busy keeping all the plants for sale watered in our drought and heat this summer to mess with my personal plants this summer. Hopefully next year will be better!
This alocasia is two years old. I just chucked it into the greenhouse over the winter and popped it out this spring. It really didn't grow in the greenhouse, but maybe one or two leaves, but it still looked good and green this spring. It was only about 3.5 feet tall this spring, and I thought it was big then! I have found if you want them to grow faster, turn them loose and plant them directly in the ground for the summer. And water the heck out of them. Luckily this one stayed watered because it's right next to the small greenhouse and a hose faucet too.

i'm new to all this banana stuff, but what I can tell you is it is AMAZINGINGLY nice!! Its like a banana jungle in the middle of tampa. the layout, the plants, the variety, and the success he has.
His preying hands fruit stem (or whatever its called) is like 8' or so and loaded.

of course I am sworn to secrecy on his methods, techniques, and the location
