Default Re: Valor_X & Backyard Banana Joe - Who can fruit a Praying Hands pup first?

My Praying Hands is a beast...
It's now about ~13-14ft tall and nearly caught up to my Orinocos only a foot taller at ~14-15ft
Check out the size of that massive cigar coming out, and it still has some more to go. The last leaf looks like a 7 footer. 6ft fence for scale.
The 1st pup it had is a monster now too, at least 10ft.

Some of these pics look like just leaves now...
I love my little jungle







How's your bunch coming along BBJ?

People are usually trying to get rid of plastic nursery pots. You can also probably go to a plant nursery and ask if they have some you could have.

Your Praying Hands looks great! Those leaves coming out are regular surfboards!

The bunch is filling in slowly, so maybe two more months.
