Costus Pink ShadowBy: Lesley Challen on 14 May 2017We live on the Far North Coast of NSW, I purchased one of these plants previously a few months ago. Was not sure how this would survive given it was brought down from tropical QLD. It has survived an extremely hot summer, planted in part shade, and is flowering for the first time. I use a lot of Troforte and Seasol in my mostly tropical gardens. Given our location, my orders can take 8-10 days to arrive, a good watering with Seasol when I receive them always picks them back up after being in the Post for so long. Always happy with my purchases from El Arish...
