Thank you Katy. It's doing great. Grows very fast. All this foliage since early March. Couldn't wait to get it out of the house it was getting to big. I had to remove three of the biggest leaves @gjones

Oh no. Mine seems to have stopped growing since it went outside but no damage yet. I hope yours acclimatises & recovers well.

I'd say it's the cold nights knocking them back. I'm sure both will be fine from here on in @jeatacake

I think you're right. We've had a few nights where it's dropped down to only about 5C since I planted it out. Hopefully no more cold nights now 🤞
