Plants and rocks go together!!
Ooh, those are pretty stones! Nice plant too! Makes me think about breaking out my long forgotten rock collection & putting it to better use! Thanks!
Thanks for sharing, James! Those rocks plant! errrrr...I mean That Plant Rocks! Yeah, that's it! That plant rocks! The stones are pretty too.
Nice one James, I like your rocks... you've just reminded me of one of the passions of my late father, he use to polish stones, ...I used to go rock collecting with him a lot.
a buddy has been growing a plant for about a year that looks to me to be the same as this photo. the only name he was given for it was 'elephant plant'...is this correct? same plant you think?
May I answer for James? From the looks of it, I believe that's Portulacaria afra (variegate), aka Elephant Bush.
I really love this plant, always reminds me of a miniature variegated Jade; but I fail miserably at growing it. My next to last one lasted a year, my recent one died w/in the last month (I think that makes 4 I've failed w/).
Clearly, James you're doing something very right as yours looks lovely & quite healthy; pretty alongside the rocks too. How big is that? Nice shot, thanks for the post.
Thanks PG. it is good to know that occasionally the big boxes do get one tagged correctly!
I have the same elephant bush as you as well as the green variety. It seems like the variegated variety grows slower. I agree, - stones go well with plants. The cacti in local deserts are naturally decorated with semiprecious stones.
