    Looks like they're comin' along nicely, when did you start them? And where did you find Borogu cuttings, you can DM me if you don't wanna say in the thread. You're in the Mid-Atlantic area right ?

    I'm not sure that I'd say I 'love' Isa, but would certainly be willing to imbibe on occasion, especially fresh. I hope you grow those cuttings as well, so we can see if they're more resilient than the rest come fall/winter.

    Just out of curiosity, when were you consuming these heavies that left you dragging through the day? I know it's not always optimal but that effect is what gave me the sleep initiation and quality I needed to completely replace pharmaceuticals.

    Good luck with those sprouts. I'd love to have some Borogu cuttings and the means to keep them alive. Do you have a plan yet for this coming winter?

    Palmetto Thank God!

    I started them about a month ago, don't remember exactly.

    White Borogu has made its way to Hawaii. I'm keeping my source confidential, because he doesn't want to ship lots of cuttings. My first source I disclosed on this forum last year. (Poki Fruit)

    I sometimes drink heavies during the day, but mostly at night. I will mostly stop drinking them on weekdays.

    I have a few different plans for this winter. But I believe I am better positioned to take care of them this winter than the previous winter I grew them.

    I really want to get a few cuttings to try out here in Phoenix. I've got a watering system and about half the year, and based on temperature alone, it seems like kava could survive outdoors here. In case any of you farmers want to try a desert experiment...

    Kava plants grow best in high humidity so they won't be happy there, but it'd be an interesting experiment.

    Yea, I recognize that. I imagine with proper watering it should be fine. There's a post floating around here of a guy from Phoenix that was growing wichmanii(or a similar variant) and it looked to be doing surprisingly well even outside. Without that post I would totally agree with you and think it's a complete pipe dream.
