Skinny Finger Jade Leaf Variation

One thing I love about the Skinny Finger, or E.T.'s Fingers Jade is the leaf variation. Some are like Gollum, a few like Hobbit, and most more pointed. One of my favourite Jades.

E.T go

Chris. I have to agree with you that this is one unique jade. It has such character and I can imagine how much joy it brings you. Nice:-)

Did you learn the King's English? (favourite)

Mine does something like that, but I don't know if Ol' Stumpy goes three for three one the leaf types.

And I forgot to mention

That's some nice shooting.

Jeff, guess my 5 trips across the pond have influenced my writing. I just love the colour and flavour of the mother tongue, that is all.

Walang anuman, BTW.

Ah, yes, the monstrose Jade forms are like to show their variation.
Infact, I would find it more odd if these Finger Jades expressed only one leaf-type.
Of the three - Hobbit, Gollum, Skinny Fingers - I find the 'Skinny Fingers' to have
the most structural appeal (a natural bonsai candidate) as well as some of the best color.

Glad you like the "Skinny Fingers', Josh. This was one of my dollar finds at my Lowe's, which recently closed down.

I planted one in a friends garden last year and it is blooming now. :)
