Picked this up in April in Ocala Florida in a 1 gallon pot, brought it back, stuck it in the ground and its way ahead of overwintered plants. Of course we don't have a greenhouse, but for 7 dollars this seems like a good way to go.
I am of course tempted at this juncture, to go into my complaint, rant even, about the way local Nurseries and Garden Centers have missed the boat on tropical plants but that's just too boring. If you missed it and you care, there's the link!
I think the plan is now to take the truck on the April trip (to Florida) and bring back quantities of Aroids, Gingers, Brugmansias, etc. I want to do my part to make the world a more tropical looking place!
