Interesting looking. I like the dream-rock in your planter. I usually bring an unusal rock back from my adventures for each of my planters, to weigh them down and provide a bit of phosphorus.

@greenthumbalina the trunk or whatever it is called reminds me of woman's arm and where it's bent is her elbow and the leaves are her head/hair🙂

This is the only other ginseng I've seen on GT other than mine (which is tiny by comparison!) Love it! 😁
