I have a 'Pink Charm' that's been growing strange now for 4 years. Just wanted to share this strange plant with everyone. The hen is on top and it just keeps having a new row of babies every year, which pushes the hen up and is forming this tower. I'm letting it go just to see how it ends up.

Interesting. I have a few semps where the colony just keeps going up. Chris if that were your only colony would you pull it apart and plant all the chicks flat?

How interesting that is Chris. I like that you are letting it continue on with what it is doing. Such a pretty tower. I wonder if that is a normal thing for it to do. How many are allowed to grow into a mature colony.

I have 3 towers of this one, the other 2 are smaller. The rest of them are growing normal.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort!
