This malipoense has been with me for a number of years and has bloomed three times in the last five years. The older growth would never stick around more than 1.5-2 years leaving it as a single-growth plant this whole time. I was wondering what the picture would be like inside the pot so I took it out of its pot last month. And wow~ I was ready to see a few sad looking roots but this was a good surprise! Plus, there were two new growths starting for the first time but I managed to snap one off. A few long seconds of cussing out loud followed.
