I really should have done more research first, but the other night I bought an A. somalense "Tanzanian form" and I thought it was just an A. somalense from Tanzania. I later found out on google that it's a synonym for the ssp. Nova that gets the huge football shaped caudex that causes a reverse taper at the base.
I've considered doing cuttings, but the stems will always be bushy and narrow.
I really want the arborescent A. somalense for bonsai.
So if you have an A. somalense and wish you had a Nova, please email me. If you don't want the Tanzanian, I have some obesum and arabicum cuttings taken, but they aren't rooted yet.
P.S. I am only looking for A. somalense (or maybe a "Thai socotranum" if you happen to have one). Please don't email me with offers to get rid of my Nova in exchange for a VFT or something. Those are nice too, just not what I want. Thanks.
