After 6 years, 'Janet Craig Compacta' is making a new stem from below the soil line. It lives with a Ti plant (Cordyline fruticosa), ponytail palm (Beaucarnea recurvata,) some Coleus. This group needs to be repotted soon, it's drying every 2 days in this heat.

Some porch pots with Dracs & others.

'Hawaiian Sunshine' with Coleus, oyster plant, Begonias. I figured the others would need new homes by spring but interestingly, they are just leaning out of the front. I like this a lot, for now.
Thumb of 2018-06-24/purpleinopp/1216a2

I've had the tallest Drac in this pic for about 25 years. I'm going to trim the tallest stem again today, it's bumping into the porch roof and not getting enough light up there, and when brought inside for winter, that would be even more dramatic.
Thumb of 2018-06-24/purpleinopp/3329c0

The shorter trunk was trimmed last summer and has grown 2 stems to replace one.
Thumb of 2018-06-24/purpleinopp/e3234b

At the base, before it splits into 2 main trunks, there is a new trunk starting.

Let's see those gorgeous Dracs out there!

I say this because it has been suicidal for the past 3-4 yrs. Suddenly this summer, with its' first foray into significant direct sun, it's actually growing faster than the creep of a glacier, and holding onto the leaves. (knock wood) This also coincides with finally getting the last of the horrible fibrous peat off of its' roots last fall during its' last repot.

That's so odd! Mine is what I call one of my stupid easy plants (no offense as yours seems suicidal). I just keep it watered and it does its own thing! It didn't even bat an eye last winter with poor lighting when I ended up losing half of my houseplants. Confused Maybe I need to send mine over to give yours a pep talk! nodding

On Jun 30, 2018 8:49 AM CDT I put a pic of a tree that was getting tall enough to bump into the roof of the porch where it lives. Soon after, a storm blew that stem sideways and it stayed that way. I left it so it would develop an interesting bend in the stem, intending to cut it before bringing it in when it gets cold.

It's the stem all the way to the right,
Thumb of 2018-08-26/purpleinopp/5113a6

and the interesting bend is in progress at the tip.
Thumb of 2018-08-26/purpleinopp/f51087

Today I noticed that at the top of the bend, there are new stems starting to form.
Thumb of 2018-08-26/purpleinopp/9841b4 Thumb of 2018-08-26/purpleinopp/66bb68

And another one at a previous cut point, about 2.5 feet up from the soil level.
Thumb of 2018-08-26/purpleinopp/8f8873

A few weeks ago I noticed this new stem coming from the root/trunk juncture, which I exposed during a repot about 6-8 years ago.
Thumb of 2018-08-26/purpleinopp/9916d9

One of the stems of the taller plant in this pot was broken in the same storm. It looks like 2 new branches will replace it.
