I like the ones with the exposed roots/caudex and wonder if I have enough time left in my life to get a plant into that size or shape. Any guesses on the age of the Euphorbia stellata or Pachypodium bispinosum, or how long it took to "build" those plants?

Harriet,
I don't know but those plants are cool. They look almost like they are bonsai but of succulents!

Peter, I think that this has been the trend more and more now for the past three years. I like this trend. 8) Tony

Byron,
cool pics. I am sorta intrigued by one of the grafts in the right corner of your third picture. IT looks like someone grafted an Opuntia crest on top of a saguaro or something. :shock:

Also I liked that Bromelid that I guess is the Billbergia vittata 'Domingos-Martins'
That is interesting looking!

Oh and by the way, they are the ONLY ones who have placed the words in that order in their society's name. Amazing San Francisco.
