Wow you really have a jungle growing there. Your home should be on a garden club visit or a designated Botanical garden. Nice job and all that hard work(and fun) is obviously paying off.

Very nice Jim. Your agave is getting big. Any thoughts of leaving it in the ground? You don't know how close I came to buying a C. volcano last week at PDN. It was just so small..... I did manage to get a couple pics of the T. Takil. But my computer died so I can't upload them.

You can see it pretty good in this pic-I have not taken many pics of the
Trachys because so many leaves were burnt this summer.

So,I trimmed them quite a bit-they are coming back nicely though and the color is back to green again.
