Looking good, what's the size now? What are you looking at for finished size?

right now its 29cm tall and as for the final size well your guess is as good as mine it all depends on what grows where but its probably going to be kissing the 25cm limit

thanks for the interest

ok time for the mandatory update. nothing really new, its growing it seems happy, the weather isnt really helping though i imagine if there was less rain and more sun id have more growth to deal with since the last update.



sorry about the pic its a quicky

Hey mate,

Just curious as to why this was withdrawn? Did it die? I have a few Liquid ambars I am growing atm and would like know how far you can pushe them? Are they as hardy as a Trident maple? Any info would be appreciated.

Bummer :-(

LA sometimes get die back over winter, but mine usually only the last bit of the braches that were trimmed back in Autumn.
Not a lack of water on my trees over winter.
