G'day everyone, hope you are all well
Just wondering, when your plants form basals, do the basals usually outgrow the parent plant in size? I had never thought about it until recently when my largest ventricosa put out a basal which, after very few leaves, is already far larger than the parent plant at the same height. I assume it is because it has a much larger root system than a small, young plant would have access to?
It is an exciting thought, as most of the larger plants I own suffered set backs due to transportation. It would be nice to think that they will form new plants which will not suffer the same problem and which will grow to a better size.
Just my musings
