My friend and I purchased a plant at the same time in 2008. My plant has constantly struggled because bugs keep eating the tubers and setting it back. My friend's plant (in the ground) is about 10ft/3m tall with gigantic 6ft/2m leaves.

Thanks! :>)

My friend's plant is even larger now...especially with all the rain we had last season.

I hope mine will grow well and the tubers don't get eaten by bugs!
