Somehow, a binata just now popped up in my longifolia pot just now, despite the longifolia already being there for around 6 months now. Is there anything I need to do different for it compared to a capensis?

In my experience, binatas are a little bit more delicate, and will “play dead” when you try to acclimate them to the outdoors, but usually come back from their roots in a few months.

i find them very hardy plants and very fast growing outside. from cutting to small bushes in 6months.

last winter the day of the first frost i cut the leaves off because they would have died that night anyway. I put them in a small 3in pot to become new plants, in spring i slip potted it into a 6in pot and placed back outside, this what it turned into.
CPN sold this to me as a "small red binata" it gets so big over 2ft and its also green
