Keep us posted! I wanna see how their growth compares in a temperate climate versus the tropics.
My new trellis is already crawling with loads of yams vines, probably too many for the space. The new players on the scene are D. japonica, esculenta, dodecaneura, pentaphylla, bulbifera “Hawaii” and the possible Suavior. All are growing vigorously by now, but the old CV-1 roots I planted haven’t sprouted yet, which leaves me concerned. I was hoping to grow them from last years roots, to get strong vines growing, but if they fail me, I’ll have to settle for first-year vines from my last bulbils.
I placed my two purple alatas at the base of the Açaí palm, where I hope the shade will provide a cooler microclimate conducive to well-pigmented roots.
I’ll take some pics in the coming days, so y’all can see how they’re going.
