Yes, we've had some very interesting shapes here...Trichocereus Bridgesii f. monstrosa still makes me laugh when I get into a "let's look at other people's plants for fun today" mood! I'll have to say that I haven't considered myself a jade person, but I do enjoy the jades you have.

Meso, what a fantastic collection of plants. I have a hoya similar to yours. I've had it for many years and it is not grown at all. Is yours really slow growing as well?

I love your little hiney too. Made me laugh out loud. I would have bought that one too. ha ha.

Thank you for sharing.

Well, Laura, looks like a lot of junk in that trunk! How old is it to have so many leaves on it?

mesopogi92m We've seen a lot of magnificent jades on this Forum in all their glorious colors! Maybe it's the lighting in your photo, but yours look green, maybe a tip of color. But I like green. And I liked the way they are growing, not so angular. That's all! Watch, the next post will have this knock your socks off jade photo and I'll go "oh, I like that one too!"

I'm literally laughing over here! The bums on those plants crack me up! Nature has an odd sense of humor sometimes!

Mesopogi,

IT is really cute... They look like the "the pair.." LOL!!!

Pennyhal,

She does have junk in her trunk!!!! And has an attitude too! LOL When the seed pod was forming, it looked like she was giving the "sign" when someone wants to say hello when they are mad..LOL!!! Ive had fun with my DR's..they all have different personalities!!! This one is about 6 or 7 years old.. Thanks.. : ) I cut her back hard this summer and she is ready for another haircut this early spring...Thanks to a good friend who twisted my arm to cut them back!!! : )

Take care,

Laura in VB

I have a number of the NBCs and they bloom all the time, dang near off and on all summer. I keep them outside once danger of a freeze has passed, that is the only thing I do with them. I live in an area with high humidity and hot summer days and sultry, sticky summer nights. Some are in full sun, others are in part shade or full shade, they all bloom, the ones in full sun tend to get a "red" tint to them (the plants, not the blooms).
