No its a seedling... I thought you were busting my balls about the dragonfruit.. It really has tripled in size in the past three months though!

That explains the growth.  A seedling jak is a vigorous grower and with your "steroidal" treatments, I can just imagine how it will respond  ;D ;) :P

Your not kidding Rob! The thing has literally tripled in size.. I just hope I end up with an Excalibur Red or Gold and not a "Brooks Sulfur"

Despite Shee, I mean murahilin's encounters, I have never tasted a Dang Suria with that sulfur characteristic.
