A year ago I planted kalo (mostly Lehua) in a raised planter box hoping for the best. A year later they are thriving despite me having to remove all the leaves due to a fungus that was making them all turn brown at the end of summer. The plants are still young, leaves only between 6-8 inches in length, but there are a lot of keiki (children, little ones) coming off the parent plant which is exciting because we’ll have more plants!
The picture above is of a New planter box that my husband built at the end of the year to place the Mau’i Lehua stalks that a friend gave to us. I’m pleased that they have adjusted to the altitude and climate here, each one having a new leaf sprouting. I’m excited!
Until the next time, have a smiley day 😃
