Magnificent Plant More.....

The plant blossom stem (flower spike) I have been watching grow has grown so high and is now up into the tree that I can hardly see the arms reaching out from the main spear stalk! There are blossom heads on each of those long arms. I simply cannot take good pictures of them because they blend in with the tree so much and are concealed from the ground. The photos below were taken on June 6.         Click on photo to view larger.



I have found a site which has many beautiful photographs of this plant. Please go to the site and you will surely be surprised. Be sure to scroll down to the end of the page and you will see the whole process - even  after the main plant dies and the "pups" are visible.

You may now understand why this plant has captured my attention.

  1. Wow! Are you sure that isn't the bean stalk from the fairy tale? It looks like it'll grow all the way into the clouds. Are you fertilizing it? Or you just have the greenest thumb on the face of the earth!
