Its great to have you here! I like your trees in progress, the first one is my favorite, i really like the movement in the trunk. A little bit of criticism ( like you said you won't take it badly) the succulents would really look a lot better in a smaller pot, and with a little bit of trimming on the lower branches they will look amazing.

Thanks for the welcome response. I assume you mean the second one, the Carmona. I like the movement but I think its a bit too much. The only thing saving it is the small branch anchoring the curve of the main branch to the soil.

On the baby jade, I literally just severely pruned the roots. The one sitting a bit sideways is that way because I just didn't think it could take any more. They could certainly use a pruning, and even a smaller pot, but I want them to recover over the summer. I will remember to update the pics.

Thanks

Ian

Nice collection. Be careful, It's pretty addicting. Before you know it you'll have 20. :)

Oh ya, i did mean the second one.. oops. From my experience with succulents i think the pretty hardy and must be able to take quite a beating, im growing a crassula and I cut to branches probably 15cm in length and easily rooted them in potting soil.

We all looking forward to seeing the updated pictures :D
