Had this in the ground for the summer and it must have grown a 1/3 bigger. It is so fun at the end of the season to see how much growth I get on them.
Now I have to find a pot for this big boy.

I would like to know the size of the caudex. Mine is about about 21/2 inches wide and maybe 31/2 inches tall. The plant has produced sterile 'berries', typical of the plant.

The caudex is about 19" around and 9" tall. I just took it out of the ground and it must have doubled in size!

I just dug it up today out of the garden and brought it in. I couldn't believe how much it grew.

Yes, that was the biggest but the Jatropha podagrica must have tripled in size one year.
