Sky is the limit! 27/03/2014

During this week the weather here in my hometown was not so great. For the first half it was partially cloudy but not that bad but now it's 3-4 days that it's rainy and without sun. Due to the weather condition my little tree spent most of the time in my house. 
However the tree itself keep growing fast! This week  there are four complete leaves and an evident height increase. This photo it's quite bad this time, but with a clooser look you can see that in the middle of the two highest leaves there is something other popping out. Another height increase or another leaf? Probably next week we will have the answer!

Growing fast! 20/03/2014

Seven days has passed since the first post and i'm surprised of how fast is growing this little tree! Compared to the first photo you can see that now it has 3 leaves (and a forth is growing) and that the "trunk" is now more red and looks stronger but the total lenght is almost the same.
During the week I took a photo everyday but i think that one post a week will be enought for the blog.
I've also made some improvements to the tuna can: now in the bottom there are several holes for a better air and humidity circulation and during the day the plant live in a greenhouse.

The sprout! 13/03/2014

Here's the little sprout. Today is the 13th of March 2014, it has something like 1 month. Yes, the pot it's actually a tuna can but soon or later there will be a new house for this baby. I live in a countryside so it will not be too hard to find the right spot for it.
But now it is growing inside my house because it's just too week to survive in the outside word but in the sunny days the sprout like to take sunbath on the balcony.
I don't know how often i will post photos of that guy. At the beginning I was thinking to do a photos a day and then make a video after some years like lot of people have done with they're faces. But I know that i'll stop doing it after a while and also if i have to stay outside for some days or if I'll move to live somewhere else i'll not bring the little sprot with me. So maybe there will be an update every week even if I don't know how exciting can be the life of a litte tree! I will also try to make the same photos with tha same camera (a 79 Euros Samsung PL20)  and with the same light conditions
