    Default Max tenufolia -- definitely NOT a specimen plant



    Before Cin can post a pic of her behemoth plant (or anyone else for that matter), figured I'd tuck in a pic of my little guy. Afterall, since he went to all the trouble of blooming, may as well give him his 1/2 second in the 'spotlight' -- for comic relief if nothing else.

    Jump on in there, Pave! You have a worthy plant that has one upped the bigger boys. And your string of pearls and string of bananas are a great frame to you lovey max! Good job.

    Great job Paul . Don't be too hard on your little guy, at least you make it bloom!
    I have Max Tenuifolia and it's been growing to be a fairly big plant and it never flowers for me, not even once ... It is just a lot of foliage.
    (I know Zain from the forum has the same problem)
    So all this to say congrats on blooming yours! Any growing tips welcome!

    Becky, those are the common (at least around here) names for the green plants in either side of the picture. They look like their name and I think they are a type of succulent but not sure.
