    How big is yours, Bruce? Generally the root mass has to have a spread of at least 1ft {30.5 cm} in diameter before it has achieved blooming size

    Default here is a photo, Paul

    I moved it up onto a hanging basket to take the photo. It was too dark already here to photograph it under the bench where it lives normally. The longest roots are 3 1/4 inches. I guess it will be a long time before this guy blooms.

    Seriously! Seriously! Well, so much for my hoping for flowers in a couple of years--more like a couple of decades! Geez! Well, they'd better be spectacular when they bloom is all I can say! Really, seriously?
