Hi Karen .. Fascinating structure of those leaves ...

26 Mar, 2013

 

A handsome plant Karen and it looks as if its got a few new leaves on it.

Good heavens K what are you feeding it on? it is double the size of ours and we had ours last year!! is it getting a lot of heat?

26 Mar, 2013

 

Yes A! My conservatory has two big radiators in! Isn't it incredible? All those new leaves at the top appeared when we were away....but the heating was off then....poor thing doesn't know whether it lives in the tropics or the arctic!

Yes, it will! Then it will have to live outside and spend winters in the greenhouse.

It does look like spiders though, doesn't it?
BIG FAT TARANTULAS!
Please, tell me you're not going to start screaming again, Karen. Lol.

I'm not...in fact I like tarantulas....but not dark cupboards!

The new leaves on this are now really big and deep green. Not much white on them yet, but I expect that will develop with age. it's growing really fast now that I've potted it on. Lovely plant!

Ours is quite slow compared to yours, half the size I would think.....

Must be because of the heating in the conservatory A. But I was thrilled with the size of it when it came...really pleased. It's great when you get a positive surprise from an email nursery...usually you feel a bit deflated when the plants come and they are a bit on the small side.
