One of mine has also been planted out for around 20 years, was a small specimen with no trunk but has now around 5 feet of trunk! I have another that was planted out around 10 years ago already with about 3 feet of trunk now has between 6-7 feet of trunk, both in full sun so take from that what you will![/quote]


Nothing really to add apart from 5 feet of trunk in 20 years is normal whilst 4 feet in 10 years is extraordinary!
How about some images of this monster?[/quote]


Actually it may have been a little longer than 10 years, may have been 12-14, hard to remember exactly!

I wonder if cutting the side shoots encourages the main trunk of the plant to grow faster ?
