Oh WOW! How long did it take to get this big? Janice, check this out @lovestogarden 😄. Wish I had a warm place to start one, maybe next summer..🤔🤔🤔

@SikoMa it's taken about a year to get to this point...many trials & errors. The hardest part was getting it to germinate...usually cause I'd forget about it....& then it's rotted away! Don't know where it will grow into an adult plant though.....🤔🤔🤔😂😂

Thank you. Please keep us updated. Very intrigued. I'd really love to try one, but we are generally pretty cold here😕

My house has been brug invaded! Other than that my front garden is in full bloom, crazy for half way through November!

@SikoMa zone 5 that's making me shiver thinking about it! I'm lucky to live in Brighton, South Coast in UK...so very rare to go below freezing. I started coconut in warm cupboard in dark...& although growing in my polytunnel, will have to be a big houseplant soon!! 😎😎👍

@sara2309 I've still got all my hardy tropicals outside here and brugs still flowering....too many plants to get all undercover....no-one told me that plants grew this big!! 😂😂

Summers are fantastic. Low humidity (no big hair days), not too hot, cool nights. Winters are a bit more rugged, the price we pay for great summers. Plus, I love to ski 😄🎿🏂

@SikoMa always a bonus to have good summer & know it will be good....UK we just can never tell what each season will be like!! 🤔🤔😫😫 We can guarantee rain and grey skies 😭😭
