Thing is, do I want a clump of bocasana that does an odd flowering trick, or do I want another nine single heads to go with the three plants I've already got...... :shock: :roll: :lol:

It is a common plant and I doubt that you had it in mind to "show it" in the near future. To be honest I quite like it as it is, and if it was mine I would happily just repot it and enjoy the difference!

Collection mainly of cacti, though interested in a much wider variety of plants than I can accommodate!

I am going to leave it as is, just needs a slightly bigger pot.

Once it has finished flowering I will have to take a picture with it in a certain orientation and then next year we can try and guess which heads will be yellow and which pink.

Sort of like a "spot the ball" competition.
