Why such a big pot for such a little plant?

I am not sure to find time for repotting again in 6 month:)

and

In a larger pot it is easier to keep the moisture of the substrate constant.
It is a clay pot in which water evaporates through the wall.

In nature, the plants have a much larger pot.

I bought two plants of micranthum. When they flowered years later, they turned out to be two bastards like this.

A seven year old 'bastard' story! Love the updates and seeing the progression from pod to NBS.

Now we can understand why sometimes it costs a bit for the blooming size plants as it take this long to get here. Then to select ones with good flowers will wean others out even more.

Here's to your 'bastard' Fumi's Delight adventure!
