    Hey gang, here's a pic of my Marston Dragon. Does anyone have any reason to believe this isn't a Marston Dragon?

    These first two are old pics, the last one is more current.





    I did root cuttings of my main plant and here are the babies. They aren't as forked as the mature plant, but they're getting there [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Cp2k,
    In the last pic, there are 5 plants in a 4" pot. These were from root cuttings from my adult plant that I took about ,oh, half a year ago. These "babies" are growing such big roots its coming out of the drainage holes. Looks like i better transplant them to a 6" pot, and do more roots cuttings while I'm at it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Suzanne, thanks for the compliment. Acquiring this plant was quite an ordeal. Very few places had it for sale, and when they did, it was terribly expensive. But eventually, I found a place and worked out a nice trade [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Larry,

    Maybe you ought to go for the old one gallon pot on those, lol.
    It's amazing how expensive it is to buy these, considering the ease of propagating them.

    Regards,

    Joe

    One determining characteristic of Marston Dragon is, from the cultivar description: "A curious characteristic of the blade is the manner in which the segments spread sideways, often to a great length, the points curving round and clutching the air like talons, the whole reminding one very much of the feet of a chinese dragon."

    Thanks Bobz,
    I read that, but still don't fully understand what he meant. Is he saying after the intial split into 2 parts, there's a big distance before it splits again? Or is he saying all growth after the split point spreads sideways to a great length. I know, it's hard to visualize. Like a "T" with the top part continuing to grow sideways? I've seen pictures, but can't visually tell them apart from "multifida" or "extrema".

    Anyone else have any opinions?
