Picture from early morning as the sun shines on the Tricho,can you see
the color difference at the top where it is pushing new growth?
This thing has sucked up some serious water from close to 15"
of water the last 2 months...Drought busting rains are cactus busting rains.

RE: Some more pics

Looks great Jim, have you been getting this humidity. It's been like greenhouse here the last week. Mid 80s and dew points 65-70. I've seen everything of mine take off.

RE: Some more pics

For sure,one night only went down to 78F and dewpoints
were as high as 77F a day or two ago....the Castors and Thai giant
really respond,esp the Thai giant.
It had another leaf poking out as soon as the big one opened and that opened with a flower stalk.It is so uncomfortable for humans(high dewpoints) but the plants love it!

RE: Some more pics

Cool front moved in here yesterday. It's only supposed to be mid-70s next few days. Looks like we wont see 80s again until late next week. Great Lakes forecast this summer is below average temps. So far that has been the case.

RE: Some more pics

Your washy looks very lush! Seems to be doing well. You always have good luck with trachys too. Great cacti pics.

RE: Some more pics

Very nice pics Jim. You are starting to get some serious size on your palms now.

RE: Some more pics

RE: Some more pics
