Mine is putting out the biggest leaves I have ever had on a mojito but the color is pure trash...

My leaves aren't huge this year, but makes up for it in the markings. Many leaves are fully blotched rather than flecked. I'm growing it with about 6 hours sun (assuming it's shining) with shade from around 12pm to 3pm.

Fed twice a week with 24-8-16 with seaweed extract :wink:

Those markings are beautiful. Wonderful how each leaf can be different. Mine barely survived winter.

I think regular use of seaweed extract enhances colour :wink:

It certainly was a weird winter, as I lost every last Diamond Head and Black Beauty, but Mojito just gritted it's teeth.
