I’ve now re-planted my Blue Java to a spot with better soil and more ground shade (the leaves get full sun though), and I’ve added heaps of fresh arborist wood chips around it, but I still want to feed it more if it’ll benefit it. I could get lots of spent coffee grounds from a cafe if needed, and fresh horse manure if I like.

I'm considering planting cold hardy bananas for the leaves, for my immigrants neighbors.
