how old is that Euphorbia ingens, and how long from seed until they flower, its one of my most favorite succulents i have to say and im thinking of growing them by seed.

Top notch, Darryl! :thumbup:

Thanks for the comments everybody!

@cactusboss: The E. ingens was planted 8 years ago when we moved in. It was about 2-3 ft tall at that time, its now about 12-14ft tall with 60+ branches.
