    There's the fishbowl! That's how I'm growing my longifolia after seeing your pic some time ago (a year I suppose). Is it possible for it to choke itself out confined in a fishbowl? Mine is very densely packed, to remove it I'd have to cut out hunks of it to remove it or bust the glass. But I'd rather divide it then loose it to overcrowding.

    Mine become so dense i had to rip it out in chunks... that is when she went into the net pot. It was still healthy but it was obviously a dense ball of woven root.

    Many moons ago I had this plant(from ICPS seed) takeover and eliminate all the other cp in the tank. Flowered constantly.

Mine now enjoy a windowsill where they are somewhat less likely to invade their neighbor's pots....(& still flowering after ~2.5 months!!)
