    My old Jatropha podagrica, when it was in active growth, had a certain rare charm. It looked... jovial. I lost it a little over a year ago, but have one seedling that's on it's way to being a real gem like its momma. I'll snap a pic tomorrow when the lights come back on. I have similar feelings about my Euphorbia milli, but I don't know how well it would photograph - it's more one of those weird-looking plants that make you do a double-take and want to look at it up close.
    This is J. podagrica - not my pic though. Mine looked a lot like this, but had an almost spherical caudex with a single stem growing straight up out of the top.

    That is a really cool plant Joe! I'll have to get one someday.

    Definitely my biggest photo-hog plant used to be my pride and joy N. bicalcarata. (I don't own it anymore)





    But now it's definitely my N. spectabilis x talangensis




    But I've never seen a Yellow Cedar that didn't want to get its picture taken by me.

    Sweet pics Dex! There are some crazy cedars in the forest on my college campus - I should really take my camera out there some time. There's one that seems to have caught a log in midair. It's hard to put into words. When I first came across it I was hiking around the woods at night with my headlamp on, and I couldn't figure out what the heck was going on - there was this huge log ten or fifteen feet long, upright, suspended in the air about twenty feet above me. Seems like a cedar grew on some stump and attached itself to another tree, then the other tree died but part of its trunk was still stuck to the cedar. Or something. Yes, I'll definitely have to get a pic... thanks for reminding me!

    Thanks seedjar, you should totally take a picture of it, because with the way cedars grow, words cannot describe!

    Just a few more Tree pics and I swear I'm done hijacking this thread, but they are such photogenic plants!

    Just a couple more Yellow Cedar - this one dead



    This one still living, just take a good look at its trunk.



    And a few Red Cedar, which have their own very unique appeal.

    Those are some crazy trees, I'd say they are perfect for this thread.

    Sometimes the setting can make the most ubiquitous CP look good...

    mobile, that's awesome. Looks like a pic straight out of The Savage Garden.
