    It is a beauty! I dont know it depends but i might make three or two cuttings. Im also considering chopping up my tobaica x lowii since its made a basal, and more on the topic the basal was induced because i let the growth tip dangle below the pot for a while where preciously it was upright

    interesting.....reason i asked is my bical came with 2 growth points as a 3 inch plant and was curious if it could be enticed or just genetic chance....im guessing since it had one so small that it is one of the species that "likes" to make growth points. but it does appear the plant has an increased metabolism bc of it. perhaps when my other plants get bigger and I am more experienced as a grower ill think about it.
