i had this plant a few years ago and lost it in the winter. I just re ordered today and here you post. Yours is a lot bigger and nicer. Love your plant.

RE: Buddha Belly (Jatropha)

i'm so jealous.....You really have a green thumb. It's beautiful!!!

RE: Buddha Belly (Jatropha)

It may not matter a lot but you have Jatropha cathartica (Baseball) and not Jatropha podagrica (Buddha Belly.

RE: Buddha Belly (Jatropha)

Thank you for the info. I had the Jatropha 'padagrica' and I gave it to a friend.
The "baseball" one you have Marie has different leaves than what I had, but I much prefer yours.
I love the base. Looks like a round rock inside of the other rocks you have surrounding it.
So neat.

RE: Buddha Belly (Jatropha)

These are amazing. I had one about 20years ago. I need to get another one one day. I love plants like this. Your's is beautiful!


RE: Buddha Belly (Jatropha)

Excellent plant!! Do you ever get any seeds? I need to get me one of those.


RE: Buddha Belly (Jatropha)

The leaves look like miniature papaya leaves!

Marie, what is the plant you have had the longest?
