Thanks ladies! :))

I took about 100 leaves off this plant recently. It’s so out of control.

BOP and Spanish style homes are like hand and glove. Even though the BOP is from Africa😉

Wow! That must’ve been quite a task!

Yes, they go hand in hand, Stan.

Kate123,

It is a big task because the leaves are hard. This why you see all the unsightly stems at the bottom. Lol

Lovely to see how my BOP might look in a few years time! 😂 Mine's still a 3 year old seedling at present!

Lol! It grows pretty quickly.

This plant is most likely over 40 years old. It doesn’t get any water nor fertilizer.
