    Three pics of the same plant in 2015, 2017, and the third and last pic - now. I could have gone back further - I think it started off in a 3 inch pot in 2011.
    So sad that there is no show in the immediate offing- my next is at the end of September, when it will be going into rest, with the flowers finished.
    Now in a 7 inch pot ( potted in sphagnum moss) pushed into an 8 inch basket - because the pot has no rim for the plant hanger used to suspend it in the roof of the greenhouse).

    That's one of the best falcata specimens I have seen. I have been very unlucky with the one I have, which hardly grows at all.

    Beautiful. Great reward for your patience. Many would have been tempted to divide.
