@hayleyaj @joanboston ive got it in a pot with holes in the side, and then sat in a half oak barrel of water, so its always sat in a puddle. I was just wondering if i lost a few leaves the others would get bigger, im aware its still got a lot of growing to do, but just trying to get the best out of the small space its got.
No I don’t think so Dave as looking at the crown, it’s got lots to give! I have 3 crowns on mine, so could make 3 more plants. I had a leaf that was 3ft wide last year in the same pot. So give it time 😄
Depending how big you want your leaves? As @hayleyaj stated the bigger the water tight pot the bigger the plant. Not sure but removing leaves will make it bigger? Good big healthy will depend on pot size and plenty of water! Very important! 😉 @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co
@ublaszko I put my trowel in to try and show the size of the leaf urszula. Every time I take a picture of it, it doesn't really justify how quickly its growing 😂 I should be able to sit frank in it, in a couple more weeks 😀
I see gunnera all summer long when I walk through Newcastle University gardens. They're huge! 😲😲 Absolutely love it. Especially with other dramatic plants like t-rex, globe artichoke or American redbud. The biggest leaves I have in my garden is fatsia japonica 😉 Looks pretty big in my tiny garden 😂😂
@lisa868 the leaves were almost flat on wednesday afternoon when i got home, so gave it a good soaking and it had perked up by night time. I didnt put any drainage holes in the tub its in, so i think that helps .
