Susan, I bought my Elephantipes yesterday after seeing one for the first time...aren't they fascinating?
Mine is just over one and a half inches wide......Our climates are very different, but I was wondering how long you had grown yours
and if you had had any problems....I saw that you were using a terracotta pot, so when I transplant I will do the same, mind you that might be a while yet..
Here is my little one.......
