A report from a member of the mashua growers society

Hi all not long ago some of us lucky people thanks to Jan were able to purchase a rare sth american tuber.Having not heard much lately regarding on how everyones is growing I thought I would show mine to compare  with maybe  the other lucky growers .I am growing mine in a 70 litre pot on the eastern side so as not for it to be in too much sun,after all it did come from tassie and I also have it covered in netting.How is everyones?…
