Torch Ginger


These beautiful flowers grow like weeds here.Torch Ginger. You know those "Rubber Tree" plants that people keep in their offices and homes? Well, here in Hawaii, they grow to be an enormous, quickly spreading,60 ft. tree. Also, Morning Glory vines can grow to be over 50 ft. tall here. Our growing season is all year. Imagine the possibilities.

Do you do any gardening and if so, what are you growing? I was stationed on base, so I didn't get to do much planting.

I was growing pineapple here (indoors) but that plant got too large. So I gave it away.

Good luck on your chicken coop! Post pictures when you can.
