    Oooh, I had one of those once! Unfortunately, I was unable to keep it alive nor bloom it though it did hang on for a few years before expiring. It was a neat mini-mini. Yours looks great!

    That is a great, soft pink. The plant looks super healthy too. Our poor little tolumnia is barely growing...

    Cheers,

    "do you must it every day?"
    No. That will kill it for sure. Let it dry out between watering and even drier in winter.

    Amazing! Is that really just one plant? How old is it?

    My little Tolumnias look nothing like your plant/plants.

    It was a single plant in a 2"/small pot that I started with 10+ years ago. Over the years, I have send people cuttings/division twice. Because of the way it grows and the the way I divided it, I can't garantee it is a single plant now...and again, I don't put more than one plant on the same pot or same mount on purpose.

    Not all Tolumnias will grow fast like this one. Some of them just never grow big even in the wild.
