I repotted this tree into a 7-gallon grow bag with diatomaceous gravel and pumice. For aesthetic purposes I trimmed away some smaller surface roots that were crossing over other roots I inoculated the roots with endo mycorrhizae and gave it Osmocote 14-14-14.

Updates will come as relevant. I’m planning to grow this into a clump style.

@0soyoung ooh, now I’m curious! I’ve added that to my notes about this tree so that I might remember to collect some leaves… if I can find any low enough to reach.

@Arcto yes, that is a reasonable guess. Here are additional photos that show the range of foliage.

It will be fun to see how these progress for you. I always bypassed them due to the large leaf size. Otherwise, they are a robust species that sizes up quickly. Glad to see someone carrying the torch with these. Can you ground grow any where you are?

@thumblessprimate1 but I have clay surrounding the gravel and the rock sizes vary from 1/2" to 5" in diameter :(

…this is all from literally the largest floods in the known history of the world
