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

Your Praying Hands looks great! Those leaves coming out are regular surfboards! :08:

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

Re: Anyone growing Thai Black?

I hate to say, but I don't think that is Thai Black. Unless yours has mutated. By now it should be obvious, even from tc. I guess time will tell. If not, next spring I can get one to you.

Re: Anyone growing Thai Black?

It's running out of warmth, maybe 6 more weeks of growth. Hoping it's established enough to make it through the winter
