    It's a very curious thing. the need for repotting. I do some of my tiny seedlings every 3 months - they seem to get a boost from a repot. Flowering size plants - meaning big enough to flower but no more, usually get done every couple of years at the longest ; but specimen plants - big plants with lots of leaves, get done at longer and longer intervals, in fact hardly ever. It is too difficult. And they love it.
    I don't have any explanation.

    Not the best in the world. Its not uncommon to see plants of this with more spikes. The problem is that you have to go to where its growing coz it sure can't be shifted easily.
