Ok, so here's my entry. I live in Miami so gumbo limbo is about as native as you can get. LOL I initially collected this by sawing it away from a large branch that had been cut by landscapers. I literally just planted the large stump with the three main branches coming from the trunk. There was a 4th large branch but I didn't like the position or the fact that it was an even number of large main branches. all of the smaller branches with leaves were grown from the main ones since I potted it in May 2021. I am currently working on getting lots of ramification and going for an African style like Pierneef or baobab style. I just recently defoliated and wired a bit. Haven't picked out a pot yet but will do that in the next year or two. Here are some pics:
