I like to prune off the lower leaves to give them a tree look.

I really like this look! How do you get them to stay upright?

Did you use wiring to do so? Are you a Bonsai lover at heart?

I love them in small pots like this. Much more room for more if you keep them restricted as so. Beautiful!

,,,,no wiring. I guess it is the roots keeping them upright. I may have put a few larger stones under the top dressing to balance against the trunks when I repotted this into the shallow bowl. Yes, I like the bonsai look and also the work of those who do Ikebana. I am always on the lookout for interesting pots.

:::Jessie::: Yes, Ikebana is way cool....mostly done by Japanese ladies, but popular all over the world. We can learn lots about staging our succulents from looking at samples of Ikebana....try "Google Images" for examples.
