Second review of this plant
Well the plant has grown and it now has foliage as well as being very spiney I love the way it has grown and developed and it is going to be a great plant here on the deck where it does get a little bit of sun and shade. It is really looking great now as you can see from the pictures.
We will see how it does?
I like the look of these plants in there new home. They look really good but they are still very young plants at this time.
