Our CIFGMN plants thrive on teh southern side our our house in Lower Hutt, with lush foliage (leaves over 60 cm across). They are planted into soil filled with homemade compost, and regularly fed with a variety of homemade liquid fertilisers (seaweed, comfrey, worm tea), and mulched with fresh seaweed. The best tips are keep the roots cool with mulches, and feed, feed, feed them!
