I recently divided my bellatulum and noticed this good root growth. I have heard this one is a little difficult but I guess I got lucky and got a vigorous clone. It came from eBay years ago. A previous bloom is also shown.

Just Amazing, I'm more of a root/plant person as opposed to just flowers!
Thanks for the amazing photos!

I've never seen before a plant like yours with plenty of healthy roots. They fill the whole pot -- that's great. I'm deeply impressed. What's your secret???

Best regards from Germany, GuRu

:clap:Geff, can you give more details in how you divided this ? With all the roots and being in SH..it looks impossible ? TIA !

Gilda - I just pulled it apart and tried to save as many roots as possible. Obviously I broke several of them. I would have just moved it to a larger pot but it has started to form a "mound" on top of the pot and was beginning to crowd itself a little so I had to divide it.
