Let's see your jumbo propagations!

The trunk on the left (Dracaena marginata 'Tricolor') was added to this pot as a cutting this past fall (with regular D. marginata that has a little air plant in the crook of its' trunk, a Begonia.)

I just added the piece of Ti plant (Cordyline fruticosa) in this pot a couple hours ago (with existing D. marginata 'Tricolor' trees.) Pretty sure I got the stem all the way to the bottom of the pot. Hope it makes roots all along that length, like the Dracs do, so I can raise it a little whenever I repot, for an interesting exposed-roots look that I like, although I had to put the rock there to stop squirrels from constantly digging in this pot.

This is a start from the momma trees pictured behind it. 2 years ago i bravely cut back my 15ft ficus trees down to a manageable 10 ft tall. Most of the cuttings took and we're given away. One i am using for Bonsai. This one i am growing into another tree. It is 5 feet tall now. It looks like the mother trees need another haircut soon!

The stump of the red Ti plant is starting a new branch.
