~ Well I finally transplanted Caven from the white 7" pot to the 20 Gallon pot I had previously set up for him. We will be gone this weekend and my hope is that Caven will keep more moisture in the larger pot as I have been needing to water him at least once daily this summer.
~ I also fed Caven again. In this larger pot I gave him 2 TBSPs of each of the two types of the same plant food I have used previously.
~ Caven's corm stalk is now is now 6" around in diameter at soil level and 8' tall to the bottom of the 11th leaf.
~ I also found some soil gnats on Caven's soil so I sprayed them with "Safe Soap"
|4" crib pot, 7" child pot, And adult pot where he can raise his pups.|
|All three of Caven's pots are here for comparison 4" crib, 7" 'twin' bed, and 20 Gallon adult bed.|
|Cavens 11th leaf roll is beginning to unfurl|
|This angle shows Cavens second baby leaf that he will soon loose. Don't worry he will soon have a new adult leaf to replace it.|
I found this guy in Caven's big pot (that already had some dirt in it) so had to move him to Kathy's nearby plants. When Caven was transplanted I gave put him to back in the pot. Bug chow time.
|Headed to look for supper|
|Notice this Walking sticks next meal hanging about?|
