Supplier - Daleys

Was a seedling. Got it a couple of months ago .

It had grown almost double in size . But all the leaves is starting to get rusty and falling off now. Just hopes I will start to kicking again as we go back to Spring. Very slow growing plant, perhaps due to being put in pot it is the way it is .

Got it last summer 08

Just harvested it 2 weeks ago, got a few tubers from it . I've planted it in a pot .

Tasted like those of Jicama, I found. But less starchy . However it doesn't leave that heavy setting in the tummy . And at the time It is so good as a remedy for coughing .

Sorry, Just saw your enquiry now. It's in Cabramatta's CBD, next to the multi level car park's plant stall. If you can't get it there then just get it at Daleys I recommend you.

Got this one through Daleys . back in Oct 08, It had grown double in size. And I've planted it in pot . I am still wrestling with the idea of planting it into the ground . Very luscious green looking . Who knows I might put it in the ground this Summer .

Supplier- Daleys

Seedling, got it last summer 08

I planted it in a pot, a very small pot, but throughout the summer it loves heat and sunlight so much that it had grown almost 3x it's original size, which the stalk was unable to support the top, I had to tied it to my clothes line for support, as the wind kept knocking it off .

Surprisingly those ants loves nesting under the soil in the pot of this plant.

I'll repot it later in the coming Spring

I got this through Ebay, that was before I discovered Daleys hehehe .

Since this will grow to be a very big tree, I'll try to only plant it in a big pot as I am running out of ground space for it in my tiny garden .

Potting soil . I used the cheapest one at Bunnings . I'd mixed 2/3 of the potting soil and 1/3 of the chicken compost and 2 scoop of the slow release fertiliser . And every 3-4 months I'd just spread.
