Here is a F. Retusa I found in my local nursery. I go a deal on it cause it had a few wire scars, but I figure they are not that deep and will heal with time.
as I was re-potting this tree I found it had more thicker trunk buried. it runs along the surface of the soil. I'm not sure how I will use this feature yet.
here it is in a growing pot. aka. a one dollar colander. hehe.
I plan on letting it grow out for a year of so, then plan on a drastic trunk chop righ below the bulge near the top.
