Thanks @latebloomer, yes it's doesn't look real. Never bloomed at all last summer, but since been in polytunnel has been non stop blooming! @brightcolours I've 2 X polytunnels joined together at total length metres! You haven't seen my spare room inside the house yet!!

My edible ginger and galangal plants already on show are from "shop" bought things, just look for fresh and a little bit of growth. I'll put up one of my colocasia that I bought for £1 last month now, it's called Xanthosoma Sagittifolium Colocasia

Also pomegranate seeds, kiwi, papaya, grenadilla, passion fruit,cherimoya, loads I've just spent years reading, researching, testing what grows "True" from seed, what you may have to graft, how to stimulate or treat the seeds. I get passion fruit seeds to germinate in 1 week, they usually take 6-9 months. I use potassium nitrate solutions, giberellic acid, lots of different things 😃😃😃

My guava plants in here are seed grown, but these are well know not to grow "true" to parent, you may get lucky. Again I graft to them after 6 months from my main grafted fruiting trees. When my back is better I'll put up pics of my main grow room with my "prized" trees, they're my babies!! 😃😃
