Hi
have 5, that were grown from seed two have MUCH more developed "bottles " and would make wonderful pot plants
They are around 8 feet in 25 inch pots and weigh over a hundred ponds so no shipping lol
4 are located on my neighbors yard and they are moving,fear the new owners might not be as understanding.
I got an offer from a local nursery but would much rather see them go to hobbyists. It took 25 years to get them to this point!! gary

I understand. I wish I could bring the trailer down and pick them up or knew someone coming this way. It would be an early Christmas present. Find good homes for them...

Hi
They are rated a zone 10 /11 but they have endured 28 for several hours with a couple of daytime highs of 40/45.
I suspect they would be bigger and more developed had that not happened.
They were grown from seed from the mid eighties and have always been maintained in pots. Not difficult but takes LOTS of time lol gary
