I love seeing series of photos like this that show a plant's development over time. Thanks for that!

Back on October 1, 2011, i took some leaf pullings from the above plants and then on November 1, i placed the strikes from those pullings in this 4" pot.

Here are the plants from those strikes along with an odd looking green mass of baby pinglets, in the centre, from one of the strikes.

What you are seeing is a gravel top dressing covering an all mineral mix just beneath it.

This plant came from CZ Plants and was sold under the name P. esseriana Giant.

Mine continue to grow both wider and taller and haven't topped out in size yet.
