It was a bit of a fight but this is now repotted. Worked out that I must have had this for over 40 years 😱 #houseplant

Wonderful plant Jacqueline. I bet it was a bear-cat to re-pot. Looking good!

Thanks Laura. I had to trim it a bit to repot it just so that I could get my hand in! But I do t think it will do it any harm. I think it must propagate in the wild by animals breaking bits off as they go by as its branches are so brittle @columbiariver

Bear-cat? That’s a new one on me but I’m always on the look out for new non-swear words 😂 @columbiariver

Well done! Mine really needs repotting too. I've had it for years! I think most of my family have some of its babies over the years. I love them, they always look great regardless of the season 😃😃

They get some of that corky like stem after a certain age. I think you're right, it just snaps like zygo does after awhile. Lovely plant

Me too Kim. I’m forever trying to pass babies on to anyone passing, as I find it hard to put the bits that drop off in the compost 🤷‍♀️ @jonners73
