Re: Blue Java!!!

The one remaining hand on my Blue Java has turned black and shriveled up. I guess there was not enough power to develop the hands after a windstorm damaged the one good leaf mid to late...

Re: Blue Java!!!

You might get a flower at the end of this year but most likely it would come in November with little chance to develop the fruit but you would have a flower which is a major accomplishment. Its very...

Re: Blue Java!!!

Hello Neighbor!
