Hot, bright weather and lots of rain seems to be to this rascal's liking. Seems to just leap everyday. Already nearly as large as it got all of last year with only 4 months of growth. Should be interesting watching it this year with about 6 months of growing time available.

Looks fabulous, Dave. Pretty soon I'll be able to see it from here!

Keep the 'progress' photos coming - maybe put a mark on the ground so you can take pictures from the same spot each time.

Woop woop. Yeah baby. Put away the yard stick and pull out the tape measure, the leaf parade is about to begin. This is when it gets interesting Dave. Excited for you! This is when I sprinkle 2 or 3 large scoops of MG on the ground and water it in, every week.

Looks great !

We've been getting rain every day. I actually had to move some smaller potted plants and potted orchids back into the greenhouse so they could dry out. Our humidity has been running about 95-98%.

@Homer1958 I stood in this picture just for size reference. I am a little over 6 foot and nearly as wide *Blush* so you can get an idea how this baby is growing this year.
