How's it doing?

It was not growing at all for the first couple of weeks or so —most likely getting used to the new soil and growing some roots. In the last week I have noticed that it has started to grow. I'll take a picture tomorrow ;)

It’s going gangbusters in late summer heat, humidity. Will post photos later as I’m not at home right now.

Given summer is gone, how's everyone's red Haari Papua doing?  Here's mine. 22C in the garden @8:00pm pst. 

Mine was set back a bit due to red mite infestation in the garden. However, the bugs are gone and hopefully it will continue to grow.

Lights and lamps are on for effect and to get a picture. Quite dark outside. Yes, I just turned the lights off. It's overkill. 45c with the broodlamps. (Taken with my ir thermometer gun). I only employ them when it's 8C or below at night. (Late December-Jan)

They're looking great Alex. The weather is warming up nicely for me here in Perth, it was a lovely spring day of 29c today. I went down to the beach today and grabbed 10 litres of seawater to water the coconut with, I really think it helps, the best looking coconuts I've seen here in Australia are growing around the high tide mark along the beach. Looking forward to seeing how your coconuts fare over your coming winter mate, thanks for sharing your efforts.
