The Castor Bean plants are growing so fast that I had to move them into these tubs only one week after I had transplanted them into the largest pots I have! It will be at least another 2 weeks before I can safely plant them in the garden. Meanwhile, I hope they don't outgrow these because I have nothing else that will hold them! And they are supposed to be a "smaller" variety!
Looks like they are getting ready to flower, too!
I spend time just sitting and admiring them every day. These are definitely the most exotic and fascinating plants I've ever grown!
My collection. Notice that they all have a reddish tint but the one on the left!
I can hardly wait to see them in the garden! :)
I am a passionate gardener and seed-saver, who also enjoys playing the violin and accordion, running, spending time with my 4 golden retrievers, keeping chickens, photography, and reading.
