Growth is going good. All 4 pots have taken off rather well. It's already been over 100 degrees and they're still doing good.

Righteous, basically the complete opposite end of town from me.

A little over a month in, still doing well. I'll probably start a very mild fertilizer in the next week or two. Stoked I was able to get approval from the HOA to put this lattice up. It's likely to get up into the 100s pretty much every day from now until September.

Could be a record-breaking few days out here in Vegas....



Neither of my plants is doing great at this point. Pretty much all the leaves that get more than about 4 hours of direct sunlight end up brown and crunchy. But the parts that are in the shade the majority of the day are still doing just fine. I have everything positioned to maximize the sun exposure (since they are on an east facing balcony), but I might actually be better off pull everything back a little bit. Either way, even if I don't get any harvest this year, I'm confident that I will have a couple nice root crowns and a lot more experience going into next year. Pics to follow....

Mine all got pretty hammered in the heat but then came back during the monsoons. I actually got pretty decent growth considering they were first year.
