    D909FC8F-3B16-429C-B6D0-51DE9A32CA94.jpeg I bought it on a Spring order so I never actually had to pull out the cash all at once.
    When I looked at my online banking I used to transfer £5.00 till it was paid for. I took delivery this week.

    I cut off the needles in case of injury to any visitors... Laborius job.

    Thanks everyone, hope I can keep it looking that good. Apparently they are waterd once a week in summer.

    If anyone knows how to look after them I sure would love to know how.

    That is native to west Texas where it rains very seldom. Water very little while it is getting established then do not water at all. It is a desert plant and rain does not happen very often in the desert.

    Kate it's a beauty and I bet it won't be long before you'll be having to place it in the ground...as I brought a Cordyline and it only did 12mths in a large pot and needed the ground with the root expansion and now I have another shoot coming from the stem :)
