Default Lost a heartbreaker

This is all that is left of my Golden Rhinohorn - 2 dead pups. Just didn't take to winter very well.



And then, behold, it is coming back.



Never give up.

Cool.....exciting when that happens. I always quote you as the original who said never give up until it's a hole in the ground. Chalk up another one!

And even, occasionally, a hole in the ground will produce a new pup. Amazing what a banana will take.

If it weren't for Jon's advice on leaving it be, I wouldn't still have my 6 Gran Nain x Sumatranas doing fine and dandy - resurrected from the long dead TC mama. It was 6 months before the the first pup popped. Same goes for the friggin' Pisang Klotek. Just leave 'em be.

Thanks Jon.

Dan
