If it looks good don't worry. Mine was collected by Wiebe Bosma so should be ok.

I have one or two. I'll start with Brachystelma filifolium. I had it for a few years, growing fine then dead!

Lovely Brachystelma but you are treading a well worn path most of us have been down!

My Larryleachia is left well alone!
