Caven's spring update

Although Caven lost a few leafs after its repotting, he is doing well and putting on a huge 19"+ leaf right now.  It is not all the way emerged and rolled out so stay tuned on its exact size.  Also below are pics of our Tomato and Basil plant.

Doing well and growing.

There are 5 pup still around Caven and two potted left that need a new home.

The latest 19"+ leaf almost unrolled.
Down the pipe of the latest leaf unrolling.
