    Do you mean you cut off some of the leaves?

    I don't think I would feel comfortable doing that with this one as it only has two left!

    I really like this Steven---I don't remember seeing it when you first posted. It's always nice to hear a follow up to know what happened/what worked/what didn't and so on.

    No, you're right Steven, never remove a healthy leaf.

    UPDATE (and that is usually good if someone is willing to do that, right?):

    This B&S plant graduated to a very small pot tonight! It has two nicely progressing roots and a new leaf coming on. I put it in sphag so I can monitor its moisture more accurately.

    Default UPDATE!

    Updates, I have found, are good things for the most part. That usually means GOOD things are happening.

    That is the case today. Here is an update on the plant I was able to save. It has since graduated from the small pot in sphag and is now in a small container growing s/h. Other than the color of the leaves it seems to like it. I am currently debating on whether to move it to a more "traditional" method.

    No spikes yet, but I am hoping it feels well enough to do something this year.

    Wow, that's pretty Steven. Reminds me of a peppermint candy! Hope the other one makes it

    Actually, I don't know which "one" this one is. One of them died and I was able to save this one. Hoping for a flowering again soon.
