Looks great! Like the amaryllis in between.
They already have lots of leaves... How fast they come out?

artic.. hows things going up there in n.utah??
this probably has been the worst yr for me growing
nanners.. :(
i dont know if it was the extreme heat..super dry, i didnt
fertilize enough..all the the above.. but..
my maurelli are ok..but only dwarfs of what they usually
are.. i think the tallest one is maybe..maybe 9ft tall.
thats tiny compared to most yrs..
even my sabas ..maybe 6 ft.. sigh..im such a failure..
LOL :)
odd.. with this heat..i would have expected the colocasias/alocasias/xanthos to do poorly.. not..
they arent huge..but they are pupping like crazy ..and
look good.. with all this intense heat/sun
??? i dont get it..
??how are your tropicals this yr???
