We'll see, I think it will be OK. My S. arborescence had a lower leaf yellow up pretty good a few weeks back, so I changed the angle a bit, and it greened back up -- just like a normal plant! :))

So this:

has now transformed into this, after I just took a razor blade to the ugly old leaves. It would look even better had it not burnt a bit, but I am not complaining!

:lol: They grow up so fast! So happy this pupped for you so quickly. Must be liking it's new digs. Can't wait to see how it grows! I have no concept of how quickly the offsets themselves grow once formed.

I thought we were apprised that the S. arborescens is actually S. Lavranos 23251... :M (on the sun exposure thread)

Congrats on the 2 baby Pings. :U

Hence the "cf". If you recall, I had mentioned quite a while ago that I didn't believe it was actually S. arborescens. I believe the technical translation of cf = "well sorta kinda maybe, but sorta pseudo quasi".

Wait, I think we can turn this into a Billy Joel song...

Nice! And in characteristic fashion, the energy the original rosette put into growing the underground rhizome, has now resulted in the next growth as a faster growing and likely to become larger offshoot than the original.
