Good Morning...

I have been noticing this plant and they are pretty and small...Then I see they grow to 8'...Can you tell me...

Are they a fast grower? and can they be topped....They don't look it, but I thought that I would ask....

Have a wonderful day..

Here in Pakistan, this plant is maximum 4 feet high and very very slow growing. Never seen any bloom.

kaleem....I have just sent off may cuttings/plants to no avail....I must curse them as they go, or they miss me so much at their new home, they die....also it's getting so hot here now, (in the 90's) that the heat alone would do them in. But thanks....

BYW....how do YOU ship plants....I have to learn a better way..

I always wash roots the wrape in slightly wet paper towel and then enclose in Padded envelope . Never use Box because In box plant may die.
And my plants arrive at destination always healthy and safe.

UGH.....I will try again when it gets cooler here....ps...I also had them in a plastic bag which I partially inflated...would that kill them?

You can wrape only roots after wraping wet paper towel and towel should wet too muc. And if you enclosed all the plant in Plastic baggies they will die when come into normal air/atmosphere. So when you send plants to other wrape only only roots in Plastic baggies .
