    Because he loves trivial updates so much.

    Note the dark, swelling eye. I will do my best to update frequently.

    Shucks, that is just fantastic Chris. I am certain that with the old boy scout try that you will bloom it some day. Good job little fella.

    Hah, even though I posted this thread as a joke, the little bastard now really is in active growth after more than a year of sulking.

    Aww, c'mon... It is the end of January and life it pretty boring. Tell us how many millimeters the new growth has grown since the original swelling. I need to see signs of green growth. It has been below zero here in Wisconsin waaaaay too much this month!

    Here's one. This is a NBS seedling. I really hope this turns out to be a flowering growth. It's the right time of year.
