Adenia spinosa

Have had this plant for years in a 14in terracotta pot and decided to repot into a container I made 2yrs ago. How knows why I waited till now to combine the two. Pot is 16in wide by 3in deep.

Before you get all psycho about me drastically pruning the roots let me tell you I did not have to. The taproot had rotted some time ago and was sending out new roots so none were harmed in this staging.

Seyrigia humbertii

Purchased this specimen 2yrs ago from a private collector, it was nice but I wanted to something more with it
Last year I decided to add it to my list of 2010 show plants. After some thought and some major pruning this is what I ended up with...a blue ribbon winner at the Inter-City C&S show.

The pot is a 6in oval
