    Looking very nice, I thought they would grow a lot slower.
    Still using the same soil?

    Yes & gave them a good fertilizing too these Elongata kind of gave me a big surprise they were very stringy coming out of winter I transplanted them in bigger pots fertilized put them in the greenhouse got a little burnt in the beginning then shot right up got thick & bushy I can't believe how fast they are growing and are growing many times faster than the Sacra . a much rarer Boswellia also what ever I did they like it

    I also used a regular potting soil + manure and then i mixed sand in, then during the summer time I transferred it into my greenhouse outside but i brought it inside during the winter with grow lights & heat mats, I have 13 growing now but i also grow other resin tree's like the red sandlewood.
