Thought I'd start a post I want to see how yours are doing, I'll start with my EE's one is in full sun and the other is partial sun, funny how being a tropical that it would love more sun but not true, they are the same, bin said Jumbo,planted at the same time

Then I have my Zebrina Banana, she's not happy, she spent the winter in my living room and was beautiful until I re-potted her, she's starting to look a little better, I guess she preferred being root bound

Here are a couple of baby Philodendrons that I purchased. On the leftis P. cv lupinum and on the right is P. bernardopazii. Both are doing well and putting out new growth.

My plumeria 'PB's Yellow' that I got from @drdawg. On the left is when I got it and on the right is today. It has really put on growth the 2 months I have had it. It really took off after flowering.

C. esculenta on the left and C. "Black Magic" on the right. The C. esculenta has been in that pot for three years and outside during our zone 7a winters. Comes back every year so far. I planted the C. "Black Magic" as a small plant in late April. Both are growing well with 4 to 5 hours of full sun. These plants can not be watered or fertilized enough in my experience. I put my hand on a typical leaf of both plants to show size.

I also have 4 bromeliads that I posted photos of in that thread.

My greenhouse came today. Got to put it together but this is going to allow me to get a lot more tropicals. I hate that. Rolling my eyes.

Philodendron Bernardopazi taking off.

Philodendron Lupinus is being slower. Still looks like a small climber.

Growing baobab (Adansonia) from seed - quite successful but will have to overwinter in the greenhouse (until it gets to be 30' and I'll have to build an expansion!)

While watering the bromeliads yesterday morning I noticed this very small leaf and upon closer examination I realized it was a baby Thai Giant leaf. Apparently a bulb that I thought had been dead for over 2 years is still alive and kicking. I potted it up and we will see what happens.
