    Hey Smartie2000, I love the wooden stands that your plants are sitting on,it gives them the traditional Japanese look, where did you get them.

    Hi,

    I got them from a Chinese art/crafts store locally. You may find many of these stands in these stores in various qualities and sizes imported from china. I believe these stands were made for decorative vases. They shouldn't be too hard to find

    Still didn't get around to repotting this guy, sorry little fella. I had some time to take pictures again after neglecting my plants for the better part of this month and it looks like they like it. Look at this little growth here; I'm all exited now.

    Is the blackening of the base (where the roots emergy) a normal thing for neos? It doesn't seem to be bothered by it but I'd like to know if it's normal?
