Testing my skills with "Mary Jane" 3
Oh, this plant grows like crazy :) Last time I posted about this it was up to my neck. And after I took an advice from @canna-curate (in comments) and put it into bigger pot.... grows like a tree :) Now its way above my head. Around 180cm.
I also see that...if you have it outside, like me, it needs A LOT of water DAILY! I water it twice daily and every time I pour around one liter of rain water into the pot. So around 2 liters daily. And it sucks like the best pornstar ;)
Biggest problem with a plant so big, can be its weight. Maybe those who are now teens, don't really know that weather (specially summer) 20-30 years ago was way easier to bear. It was way more fun. Temperatures were more stable and a bit lower than now.
Just to give you an example:
- In 90s you had summer with long periods of bearable temperatures (25-32°C), no weather extremes.
- Now, mostly you have temperatures 30-36°C, but when sudden effects of cold spell come ( which are very often in last decade) temperature lowers to 20°C or lower for a day. Oh...and there has to be extreme strong wind in between. Or even hail.
So in that kind of weather you have to put your plant inside and out again - many times. And that would be no problem if it's weight would be half of what it is :)
If you look a bit better you can see how plant is working on seeds for my next planting session. And quadrizillion of buds... Looks like my cat likes that also, as she takes a nap under a "tree" daily. I wonder why.
