Your plants are putting out some AMAZING growth! Thanks for sharing!

I especially love that black pearl pepper (magnificently beautiful) and of course the bananas ;D

What's that plant after the black pearl?

Oh cool it looks great!

And that's awesome that you have seeds and are nice enough to be willing to trade for them! I wish I was in a position to do so, but I just traveled to the US to university this past week and am currently gardenless lol.

I appreciate the offer, and hopefully I will get a community plot or something so I can take you up on that

Nice update! I assume in Canada you have to start bringing the plants in around this time? Also, what do you do about water getting on the floor when you water that palm?

Awesome plants Matt!!! They all seem very happy!
Its unfortunate you have to bring them in already and generally its really annoying when the weather spoils it for our plants and we have to bring them in. I wish you a successful overwintering for all of your plants and especially your awesome bananas,palms and bromeliads!
