|I had a nice Agave geminiflora in a tall pot but it needed repotting and I have put it in a different container. Forming a nice trunk already!|
I now have my beautiful tall pot to fill and am looking for suggestions. It definitely will have to be succulents. Ideas??
It's this type of pot and about 28" tall.

|I should add that the Agave was not planted in the pot. I have a plastic container that fits nicely inside the mouth and that is what I would prefer to use again.|

|Hi Hetty! That is a nice tall container! Is it going indoors or outdoors??|

|Oh - outdoors for sure. In full sun.|

Some thing with a long tap root. Yucca's has that long tap root system. A nice variegated Yucca should do the trick.

|Ah - good idea. And maybe some Burro's tail to hang over the side.... mmmm...thinking.....|

|Oh nice idea! Or maybe a Yucca with Kleinia petraea (Jacob's ladder) or Senecio rowleyanus (String of Beads).|
Or you can put a big specimen of Crassula Argentea or Crassula Ovata Gollum.

|I cannot remember the name now but if that is the color I could see this plant in there. I would like this in the middle with some spillers around to hang down.|

|Nice but I've actually gone with a Yucca Will post pictures when it grow in a bit.|

I believe that is Euphorbia trigona.

|Thank you Planto. That is it I could not remember.|
That sounds like a good choice too Dutchlady. Just do not do what I did. I planted this plant in this pot because I thought it was cute. Now I might have to take a hammer to it to get it out.

|Sure thing. My Mother had one that tripled in size in one year. >> |

|I believe it grew that fast for me. It was this cute little thing, I put it outside the first summer and the second summer and last summer when I brought it in it is 4' tall it comes to my waist. There is no way I can get it out of this little boot. I cannot it grew this large in this small container.|

|My Mother also put hers outdoors. It seems they enjoy being outdoors. I've read these can literally outgrow your house eventually!|

So good to hear you. Welcome back.
That's Red Euphorbia Trigona Tree. Picture of mine in a gutter box on porch.
Picture when I got it.

|Hi Stush I was going to PM you. That plant does grow fast.|
