Very impressive Rick! Hmmm...wonder if I could grow my own giants.

I have noticed though, that my Thai Soco's are extremely delicate as compared to my obesums. When I transferred a couple for root training they dropped their leaves...unlike the obesums. And now, our weather is cooler and the leaves of the others I have not up-potted are turning yellow and getting ready to drop. Confused

I'm guessing the arabicums have this "mandatory dormancy" period where ever they are grown...even in our climate. Shrug!

Rick, did you grow those suckers from seed? Very impressive to say the least. I guess it takes quite a few years to get them to this form/size.

No, Ken. I purchased them from Dino in Thailand. I have many at different ages and sizes, but with my 6-7 month growing season. It would take many years for me to achieve this size.
Wanted a few larger trees to watch grow. I could not pass on how affordable.

KD, yes they are supposed to have a obligate dormancy, although I have heard that in some climates they do not go dormant.
There is a good article and I will see if I can add to here. It is on the differences between Arabicums and Thai Soco's.

I couldn't remember the term, "obligate dormancy." Hilarious!

Yes, I would very much like to read the article on the differences between the two.
