    Beautiful!
    How long does it take a plant to reach this size?

    Hard question to answer. I got a flask of this over 15 years ago and this was one of the seedlings I kept. I have divided it several times since then. I would guess that from a division it would take 4 to 5 years to reach this size. It is in a 3.5" planter.

    awesome!
    I've just recently gotten into these and so I have a few small BS plants.
