Nice pictures, Taylor! I really like the Raja Puri. Mine seems to be growing very slowly. I sort of expect that since they never get really tall and it's very near a maple which has tons of shallow feeder roots. Mine is only about 3' tall so far. Looks like the Cleopatra is doing great!

Looking good!

Dear Benny: When you visit this thread, please do not cry. Some day your Cal Gold will pup, at least I think it probably will. If not, chop it to the ground and see how it responds!

Waw Taylor, looking really good there! Everything's so lush and green - I know having a warmer climate than us makes that much more acheivable as things grow much faster, but it still takes a lot of work and effort from the grower, so congrats!! I'm very envious of your Ornata mat (flowering an Ornata outdoors here would be just balmy!) and I'm liking all of those cannas and gingers I see. Also absolutely love that Cleopatra, if only that were available over here! Keep up the good work!

Thanks, take care

Pete
