    lol!@Sue "SuxOrz..." Script-kiddie-speak has so morphed into the ethereal I've totally given up trying to understand it anymore.

    Steve, that's always a disappointment. But I have to say, if I had a dollar for every spike I've broken.....

    Hey uncasteeb...sorry to hear that but if it's any consolation, I did the same thing right before X-mas with my psychopsis. But just last night, I discovered a new spike poking out from the top node. So you shouldn't have to wait long for a new spike. Good luck!

    Congratulations. Nice that they can come back better than ever after an accident, huh?


    (<sigh> now that my status is suddenly "senior member", I had a senior moment and hit the wrong buttons. Previous post was gibberish so I deleted it. )

    It is nice you get a second chance with your plant. That doesn't happen very often with these beasts. Congrats!

    I was also noticing how quickly I aged out here and became a Senior Member. What comes next - The Golden Guys & Gals??
