Hey everyone, I currently have around 7 producing Tahitian Butternut plants. This one is by far my healthiest, the arrangement of leaves about the soil in a wide spread symmetrical 'umbrella' like arrangement is rather profound and interesting! The shade rendered by this plant relative to all the others way older is vast.
I am not too certain on the science behind how the leaves shade the fruit, but it would seem the less the fruit has access to light the better off it does. Naturally the leaves (solar panels) need as much sunlight as possible!
Here I featured my Cannabis plants (almost 7 foot tall now), Rock Melon or 'Spanspek' In South Africa, Corn (Mielies) and as usual my gorgoues German Lizard Slayer Tinkie.
Pretty neat right?
Nature the incredible.
I trust you have an amazing year!
