Loks bigger than that, abwal! I'm amazed by the different gingers - that one looks particularly beautiful.

Luzy, I lied. It is about 9M x 7M. Never was much good at estimating area.

Enrico, make sure it gets good light, but not direct sun (morning is O.K.) and keep moist.

Photos show only what we want to be seen. I could have photos of heaps of failures.
