Yep, that cold front is getting us this time, too. High in the 60's on Thursday here. But we had the a/c going yesterday . . . that's spring weather for ya.

It is a really pretty little Giant there, for sure.

Yup, had pulled a bunch of stuff out of the greenhouse for fresh air and to take stock of how things are doing. Ones that get stuck under benches in the back and on the top shelves in the back don't get alot of attention over the winter...so far so good. But....back in they go for a few days.

I agree

Got an update for us drew?

Man if that maintains that color and attains typical jacks size and stature then bad boy is winner!

Especially if it acts like jacks giant...but I'm asking too much...

It can't have that color and jacks easy culture and massive size...that would be too good to be true!

I'm guessing it's smaller wimpier the bigger leaves get less varigated right?

That's always the way...

Awesome either way!

Thanks for sharing!
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
