    Damn climbers...
    I had to pretty much bury the two older growths, in order to get the spiking one (which has a new start also) stable in the pot. Roots fit fine in this 4" square. Does this look okay? Thanks!

    Should be fine.
    Phragenstein has the first growth buried(about 2" deep) so that the flowering growth was touching the medium.It,s sitting in about 1" of water continiously & the growth is still ok after 5 months.Actually it,s growing a new growth from the buried growth & it,s doing very well.

    Cool, thanks (again!) I was re-reading some old thread around here the other day about this, so took it to heart. This little girl was (IMO) a bit overpotted and the growths were very loose and the budding one climbing out of the pot when I received, so wanted to get it in a bit better sized pot and get it well situatued. Looks a lot better now, but want to be sure it is okay to have those older growths potted so deeply.
