    Cool photo! I would not repot that little guy just yet. Masde.'s like to be tightly potted. (At least the one we grow does.) It just blooms and blooms!

    Cheers!

    that's why i love this little guy... that and the fact that it can be in bloom most of the year with upwards of 20 flowers at the peek! (that is if i can keep it alive )
