Growth of Summer

Posted by Jake on 26 August, 2009

Sometimes whe I look at some of my plants I can’t tell they have grown and other times I actually can see that they have grown. It really surprises me how fast some plants are with no eatra cre except for watering and not too much of that. These are the plants that are so rewarding becasue you can give them so little and they still pay you back.

On Easter I got an Alocasia calidora and it is a plant that I didn’t think had grown that much. Well…it has actually grown a whole lot since Easter. The leaves are a lot larger and the trunk is a lot wider.

Another plant that seems not to have grown very much is my Longleaf Pine. It hasn’t gotten any taller, but it has been producing quite a few new needle’s and they are longer then the needle’s it had in the spring. Apparently it should start growing at fairly fast rate in another year or two.

A plant that has grown fast and I can tell it by just looking at it is my Loquat. It has grown so fast and is still growing, all it does is grow constantly it never stops. I hope it produces fruit this year just because I want to have the wonderful smelling flowers.



Then finally I have decided to throw in a picture of some Washingtoia filifera seedlings. The reason I am including it is because they have grown so much since I planted the seeds July 6. They are very fast growers!

Easter Gifts

Posted by Jake on 13 April, 2009

I got a nice gift for Easter, a Persian Palm! I am really excited and planted it out in a bed yesterday. I also found myself a nice little gift at a Wal-Mart, a Silver Dollar Eucalyptus for only $6.00.

Yesterday I also noticed that my Spindle Palm is starting to push out a new spear. I was begining to worry about it since it saw 23 degrees and was only covered with a garbage bag, I know plastic is bad. I thought I woud show you all some pictures.

Have A Great Day,
