Growing Fast

My Banana Tree’s and Castor Bean plant are all growing so fast that you can tell they are taller daily. I just wanted to just show you how they grew.

The Banana’s

These tree’s are putting out 3-4 four new leaves a week. The Banana on the right was actually a lot smaller then the Banana on the left.

    You must have super charged soil!

      I have found that even with it being so hot here and humid that I can water less and the stuff grows more then it did in Florida. It is the not having the draining sandy soil here in Kentucky that I had in Florida.

    Those bananas will grow like crazy for sure. I had some but removed them this spring. Surprisingly enough they are still coming up-even in the compost bin. Go figure. Those castor beans look fabulous! I think they are so pretty.

      Today the 31st, 5 days after these pictures the Banana’s and Castor Bean are already a ton taller. I think you should find a spot for your Bananas or send them my way. Lol. Would you like some Castor Bean seed? I have plenty and can send it to you. Just cut the seeds stocks when they appear and you wont have to worry about them being toxic.
