Talkingmusa Ae Ae


Just have to share my excitement!!

I lucked out and got one of those treasures as gift. There are generous people in this world, I could not believe I finally own an Ae Ae. I was in shock all the way home

just brought it home yesterday:

I was told it is a 'small one' so I expected a pup. instead I received a tall plant (note the 6ft fence behind it) with the leaves streching up to over 9 ft:


I had this plant on my wishlist for several years

How wonderful to finally have a plant of your dreams could not have happened to a nicer person. That is so great. I am sure you will find a way to keep it alive and healthy and fruitful (pups). Congrats on your very deserving gift.

a total stranger, mara. He had visited my garden's website and sent an email asking if I would agree to exchange garden visits, and that he'd have some of the plants on my wishlist. Since I love visiting other plant enthusiasts' gardens I of course agreed
