Sounds great! 'm sure they're going to be gorgeous. When you do cut them, please post pics. I'm always interested to see others adventures!
Are you cutting yours?
I was afraid I would have blunt tips. Not that that looks bad, I just don't prefer it for me. I cut gently and at an angle. Palm rolled the ends and within a couple days they only unraveled about an inch or two up and held together great, just like they did when they were long. Within a week or two it was like they were never cut. I still have one two that are pretty thick and mature and I've let them just do their thing. They're playing well with the others. :o)
