Mid-September Tropicals

19 September, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

It is hard to believe that it is already mid-September. I thought it was time to show you a few pictures of the are. One picture is particular is of the Colocasia ‘Pink China’. It shows how it acts after just about 2 days with no water and temperatures in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s. While no other Colcoasia does this or needs near the amount of water as ‘Pink China’.

Colocasia ‘Pink China’ after two days with no water and it not being too hot. A very thirsty plant.

The Castor Bean has the Hyacinth Bean growing up one part of it. It adds a little colour to the Castor Bean.

You can see how large the Castor Bean has gotten. It just continues to grow and grow and grow which is just fine with me. I wonder how big it will get before the first frost.

It looks like we are going to be above normal until at least November and dry as well. We are already about 10 degrees above normal for highs and next week we will start approaching 15 degrees above normal for highs. I read that we could see a spring-like fall temperature wise.
