    Things are looking very well down there. I love the Agave octopus. Will you have to thin them out as they get larger?

    No dividing of anything

    I'm enjoying the fruits of my labor. I started these plantings in 2004. Now that most of it has matured into proper proportions, I'm just gonna sit back a year or two and let it go.

    These philodendrons are doing fine after several years.

    Now is the time to really push the tropicals, in my climate. I have another two months of growing season. And if there's no hard freeze, I'm four months ahead in growth.

    That first Philodendren is gorgeous. I had one as a houseplant for years.
    And I'm amazed at your Shrimp Plants. I transplanted mine into the ground a few weeks ago. I sure hope it makes it through the winter okay.
