It keeps getting bigger, but I have no place to go with all the growths going over the side of the pot.:( Presently 6 active spikes, some with double blooms and branching).

What is the makeup of the potting mix you both are using? They are very happy in it:)

Looking at your plants, it looks like an easy growing weed, say oxalis ...

That big plastic tote gives me a good idea phrag guy. I think I'm going to set the pot I have into a big tote with substrate and let the growths climb down into the next level. It could be like a wedding cake and just keep dropping to mostly vertical growth instead of taking up a bunch of horizontal bench space.

Mine is in 2 sizes of bark,perlite,charcoal,and diatomite
Mine is pretty close: small chc with the diatomite, perlite and charcoal.

Given how good the aerial stolons grow I bet they'd root to the aluminum bench the pot sits on:eek:
