A short tour of our Himalayan Acres nursery and specimen tree plantings. Here we’re looking down the rows of about 1,000 pots mostly with agaves, sansveria and a few aloes and cactus, all plants with very low water requirements.
This sanseveria is a popular ground cover. It started out as just one shoot and has in a few months developed several more. Soon it will fill the pot.

Another of the tissue culture agaves is growing fine.

At this end we’ve planted “song of India” in 20 gallons plastic bags. This variegated dracaena is very popular.
Agave geminflora doing well.

"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
