Thanks Andy. I was happy for years when it grew 3 leafs a year. Ever since putting it in this clay pot its taken off.
Its a tweener...not Bonsaied,not a tree in ground. I just let it do what it can.

I have nice photos at Cuyamucca College where there's several in the ground. It gets very hot out there.

Here's one pic I could find from Cuyamucca College. There's many around this building in the pic.

There's one on the net of a tree in Hawaii. Its got the lean,the big trunk and open growth. Unlike the true Bombax,it was not a huge tree either.
Google images has it.

There's a good-sized one at the Los Angeles Arboretum. It most likely is about 30' tall. I haven't seen it in quite a while.

I know in Hawaii there's much larger ones.

I have a pics of a large one at the Palm Springs Botanical. I can't find it the pics, though.
