    do you feed em with fish blood, the pinoy secret?
    It gets hosed with water everyday. Perhaps every two months or so it gets a spraying of insecticide to keep scales at bay.

    No fertilizer, plant food, etc etc.

    And, it hangs just above the front gate of the townhouse here in the concrete jungle that is Manila.

    because it has been propagated vegetatively.

    I acquired it in 2004 (about half of its size now), and it must be happy with what I can provide.

    Like Ron, my jaw just dropped when I saw these photos. No word I can come up with adequately conveys my awe.

    Cheers,
