Ah I see, it's come on well and a new leaf emerging too, really lovely. What's the white stuff in the pot?

Thanks! It's a little yellow because the roots are growing out the bottom of the pot. I think once it goes into the ground it will really green up...and should grow much faster.

The white suff is perlite in the soil. I mix it with the soil for almost all of my plants for good drainage.
