    This shows all the buds(no flash & focus is much better).
    4 buds so far but spike is STILL growing (44" tall).
    I,ll get some better piccies when i,m not so inebriated

    Default Not too bad for blurry eyes!

    44 inches tall holy moly! I can only dream to grow them that tall! Here is a pic where I volunteer 2-3 days a week to repot, organize, and clean.

    Yes-- I know this is a real window sill grower .I just put mine back in the greenhouse & it just a little below the overhead fan blades when I have it staked.They are all so nice & small when we buy them.

    Hurray! It finally popped!

    ("Windowsill grower..." LOL! Makes you wonder sometimes if you're growing an orchid or a beanstalk....)

    Nice greenhouse pic, Tadd. You're lucky to be able to work in a place like that--great experience.

    i,ve had a look @ other piccies on the net & some seem longer & some seem the same length.
    (just sorted my resizing of piccies).
