Terratoonie:

You're welcome. It is growing very well and is 15 inches / 38cm tall and needs to be transplanted again. I'm going to transplant into a 5 gallon container...as it seems to have lots of roots.

Do you have other baby Sausage Trees growing in pots, or just left with this one ?

Terratoonie:

I do have some others. I started some new ones a little while back. I have sold and traded few also.

Terratoonie:

Yes, they are tough little trees, which grow very quickly especially when planted in the ground with lots of water.

I'm starting new plants today or tomorrow...then it really will be a Sausage tree kindergarten. : > )

The largest known Sausage tree in California is located close to where you live...at UCLA. I think it's about 60 feet/ 18 meters tall.
