Early days yet. This plant is a gross feeder. I'm using sheep manure and due to the lateness of the my order, (Autumn) seeing a lot of leaf die back with strong rhizome growth but slow replacement leaf growth. Expecting good leaf growth in spring. | Simon Mackenzie - Cordeaux Heights, NSW 17-Apr-2016


Prefers living under part shade, no direct sunlight. Responds well to seasol , do not let it dry out. Expands in all directions. | Carl76 - Wilston, QLD 29-Mar-2014
