You can get faster growth than that with more sun, yours looks like it just a bit underling maybe, that specific hybrid is surprising tolerant of lower light, they can handle alot as long as you aclamate it.
It's not a fast grower.

Well, Ive had that that plant several times in the past, never had any trouble with rot, I've always had em in more sun too, several hours of direct sun.

I'd bet that with more light, and possibly a faster draining mix, in a smaller pot, that all the issues with this lil guy would just go right away!

The prob with light is that i live in seattle and dont use grow lights. I have huge windows but they are also tripple paned so lots of uv lost.
i have been meaning to replant it. the pot is 3 years old and is prob compact and out of nutrients.
but thats what spring is for.

I noticed your location, and no wintertimes not great, but still rot will be eased by better soil, spring best, no doubt!
Thers some excellent c&s growers in your area, in summer outdoors you can get good growth!
Just make sure it gets protection from rain, like the eaves of the house or something.

I used to have several of this guys, i love that pattern!
I can't seem to fund them in the bbs anymore... Crying
