I also thought I would show you how large my Castor Bean has gotten since June when a part of it broke off. It is growing much taller and fuller. You can also see how tll the Queen Palm has gotten, it has grown fairly fast as well.

    My what big ears you have!

    Sorry, had to say it! The look great. I’ve wanted to try castor beans but with two small kids I don’t need poisonous plants around.

      Thnaks for making me laugh, lol. We have two small dogs who haven’t bothered the Castor Bean so far. It really is a fast grower. If you water it enough it can go from seed to 20ft tall in one season in your area. Wind is the enemy,

    Now, I am still waiting to find out if my plant is Castor Bean or Hibiscus….it’s about 8-10 feet tall now….

      I hope you have a Hibiscus, they are prettier then a Castor Bean, lol. Growing that fast make sme think it is a Hibiscus and I think you should have blooms before any frost threatens us.
