*****AEAE Update!*****



The Beautiful, Royal and Majestic AEAE opened a bigger leaf!....She is approx. 7 ft. tall and keeps growing nicely!....Seems that AEAE it's pushing out and opening new leaves faster now!....AEAE picked up the growing pace!.....


I have observed (based on my experience) once AEAE reaches 6 ft. tall in height, at least, it starts to grow faster!....



Picture from 08/09/2018....




I'm sorry Max, but this one needs to be big!....Only this one!.....LOL!............It's just breathtaking every time AEAE opens a new bigger leaf!.....






*****Updates will keep coming!*****

Ae Ae looking great Hector, do you keep the compost around it moist, all the time, for good variegation.

Thank you Mushtaq!......Yes!....Compost it's maintained moist!......I added a lot of compost, organic stuff to the Nanas, specially to The AEAE!......

Lately, has been dropping a lot of banana nectar (rain) almost every afternoon in South Florida, so nature it's doing her thing naturally!.....Even reducing the water bill tremendously!...........I don't remember last time I irrigated the Nanas!.....LOL!....

Another one that picked up growing is Patupi = Kokopo = Vudu Papua!......A vigorous Nana Variety with beautiful colors!.....Nice red/brown colorings!.....P-Stem is getting thicker!.....Patupi is approx. 5 ft. tall right now!....Last one that flowered/bloomed for me was 9 ft. tall!.....
