I think that Giant Rhubarb is particularly cool looking..



Can you use it to make a giant rhubarb pie?

Just in front of the Rusty Key entrance.
This is a Ti plant I started from a cutting from Kauai a few years ago.
It must be pretty happy here.

I picked up a bamboo shoot at a local Asian market, it was in the produce section but I'm not sure exactly how you would eat it It was actually one of the smallest ones! It has some little dots/bumps around the base that look they would sprout into roots - will it grow if I plant it?

Very interesting MDM. Wish I knew but I only play with dead Bamboo.

The lil' roots remind me of what you see when you plant a Pineapple

Crown.

Mike,

These guys (
Bamboo Plantation) seem to know an awful lot about bamboo, you might try giving them a call to hear what they have to say.

Mike, I would say plant it. What is the worst scenario? I have several banana plants and they are pretty hardy. I have transplanted a few I thought were dying but they bounced back and are doing just fine. I live in the valley and the weather is hot and dry. Make sure you start it first in a pot in a semi shady spot and with good rich potting soil and keep it moist evenly until the roots form. Keep us posted.

Is that snake real?! If I had something like that living in my backyard, you can bet I wouldn't be enjoying the outdoors much! Even if it's fake, perched in the tree like that, I'm sure it's frightened plenty of visitors to your jungle.

Thanks for the advice tiki peeps. My plan is to plant it and see what happens - I only paid a buck for it

Within the next few months here my Girlfriend and I are likely to be moving closer to the coast, and like many of you I'll be stuck with the prospect of gardening on a patio. Still, its not a death sentence, potted cycad here, ornamental grass there, some shade cloth, some epiphytes. working my existing succulent collection into a tiki patio will be a challenge, but nobody said it had to be perfect, and rum covers many sins.

I love this thread, some amazing gardens shown here. I wish I would have the drive to create something like this, I just don't have that green thumb. But I am constantly amazed what grows "wild" around my house, and very appreciative of it. To someone hailing from cold Northern Germany, this IS like living in a tropical jungle:
