Secondary Growth

Italian Chestnut: Top 18.5" grown inside with natural spectrum energy saving bulbs. Irrigation system and timers.
This 15" Sycamore (London Plane tree) seedling started from seed this spring and is showing signs of secondary growth. I was excited about this type of tree from the beginning and they are not disappointing. So it has surpassed all the oaks in height. Only the Italian Chestnuts have it, but long stopped growing with leaves slowly turning golden brown. As these chestnuts were forced, sprouting on thanksgiving they are probably ready for a long winter sleep.
