Wow. Is it bonsai after many years in same pot or they spent many years trimming?

Yes, I love the caudiciforms so much! It is a great thing when the plant does all the work and you just give regular care. 😂 I am so glad @KelsiBriana you do all this research, as I am a benefactor of it! 👏💞 You got to love the fat bottom Succulent 🎶 as Sir Mix-a-Lot must have been singing about. 🎶

@Sussanah this is just how it grows. The fat part at the bottom continues to get huge in the soil. Then as it is repotted, the fat caudex is not resunk into the soil and it looks this way. If the caudex is repotted into the soil, it will continue to get larger. Once it is left in the open air, it stops getting larger and forms a new caudex. Cool, isn't it?! 💞
