Moved Caven outside

Moved Caven outside yesterday, gave him a good watering and fertilized him with Fruit Fuel.  I started this plant from a 4" pot pup in July 22 of last year as a gift from my wife so he is now 11 months old.

Moved under the tree as the bright sun on the tender indoor leaves started to burn as can be expected. The newer leaves will be more outdoor tolerant.
