    Maybe call the offspring B58s

    Yes, they are quite vigorous. Mine did not fare well over the winter. Between mealybug and mite attacks and media that should have been changed the year before a couple of the korms shrank down to a quarter of the size of when I planted them 3 years ago but they've bounced back already.

    I should add the couple dozen strikes were from only two stalks that I saved.

    B58

    Pretty bird, but hopefully my Vft's will be less problematic and have a longer life

    Thx Matt

    I generally allow a few of my B52s to bloom and crossed some a few years back with "Slack's Giant" and others (at a different locale) with other's of the same cultivar. Both groups are robust little plants for the time being and show every sign of having the same characteristics as the "parents" . . .

    Those look great. Do you have any photos of the pot with the flowers open. Did you mix anything into your soil or is it just peat. Either way that is a very nice looking pot of VFT.
