Just broke the top 3" off the spike on my Phsycho papilio
Well i,ll have to wait for it to branch i suppose .
Gaah! That sux0rz!
lol!@Sue "SuxOrz..." Script-kiddie-speak has so morphed into the ethereal I've totally given up trying to understand it anymore.
Steve, that's always a disappointment. But I have to say, if I had a dollar for every spike I've broken.....
Hey uncasteeb...sorry to hear that but if it's any consolation, I did the same thing right before X-mas with my psychopsis. But just last night, I discovered a new spike poking out from the top node. So you shouldn't have to wait long for a new spike. Good luck!
Ouch! (I would cry.) Good luck on the branch, Steve!
Just noticed that a new shoot is growing
Well actually 2
Yeehaw! (Translation: uber-western-speak for "rad, man" or alternatively, ". Just in case the young'uns in this group never saw Gunsmoke or The Rifleman.)
Congratulations. Nice that they can come back better than ever after an accident, huh?
(<sigh> now that my status is suddenly "senior member", I had a senior moment and hit the wrong buttons. Previous post was gibberish so I deleted it. )
It is nice you get a second chance with your plant. That doesn't happen very often with these beasts. Congrats!
I was also noticing how quickly I aged out here and became a Senior Member. What comes next - The Golden Guys & Gals??
