If Triffy is growing an inch every 3 and a half days I think we have more to worry about than Covid-19 :yikes:

If willpar's reports dry up in a little while I think we know what will have happened and it isn't Covid-19.

Plant is now 5ft 2ins tall. The buds are showing signs of colour. Forecast for rain tonight here, so could grow a wee bit faster. The ground has dried up quite a bit. Just been out and loosened the soil around the plants, so if it does rain will penetrate the soil better.

The growth is accelarating !! Best put a beacon on the top to warn low-flying aircraft, Willpar.

Went past the ladies house yesterday that gave me the plant. Boy, she has loads of them and they are getting real tall. One looks to be 8ft or more. Will take a video when I go by next time.
