I was fortunate to obtain some cahnii. No flower yet. They (more than one plant here) have been in this pot for about 4 months. They are kept very warm and fed and watered a lot. They grow very easily it seems. Mix is bark, pumice, polystyrene, a few crushed oak leaves here and there and crushed shells. Mulched with a bit of......mulch.
Size tip to tip is about 10 cm.

That's a really nice, multi-growth plant. It looks like at least two of the growths are close to pushing out flowers.

They look great!
"Watered a lot" you mean the mix is permanently wet?

Not multi growth. All separate plants. They came as a re-plated clump and I left them like that. I think it was the right decision.......
I find small plants by themselves in small pots always do poorly.

No it dries out quickly in the clay pot and in the heat and air I give it. I let it get about 70% dry and then water - which is every 2 days.

Ah, my mistake. Still, they all look happy and healthy as can be.
