Oh that is a pretty one! I have some in a small aquarium..the only way to keep them comfortable.. the house is just too dry for the little ones.

Wow, how old is it? It looks really big. Beautiful. :)

This one is about 5. The mini is a trailing variety so you can leave the side shoots and let it spread. Others don't tend to bloom if you let them go like this.
