    How large are these plants?

    I work with a woman who is a transplant from South Africa. I'll share these pictures with her and make her homesick. Where in South Africa are you?

    Hi Patty
    My plant is about half a meter long (20 inches). Not sure how much more she'll grow...
    I am from the North-Eastern side of South Africa, Mpumalanga - a native name meaning "place of the sun", near to the Kruger National Park.
    Regards
    Maria
