Lovely photos as always, Christer. Will the Gymno inflate after watering or is it always as flat as a pancake?

I already water it, but as I recall this one stays very flat. I have one G. ragonesei that is flat when it sleeps, but inflate some when it get water. I got this G. stellatum from Jens and it was only 10mm wide. Now it almost fill a 7cm pot :)

Sown in 2008 in winter after new year. Started in a plastic bag for 2,5 years.

Flowers every year and produce plenty of seeds.
