Depends on species or hybrid.
My ventricosa has only ever basaled once. My 'Lady Luck'? Maybe 4 times or more, I haven't bothered to count. They're still coming up. I've had those two for around the same amount of time and they began around the same size. If anything, the 'Lady Luck' was smaller (at least at the time of basal formation) because it grew slower. I also have a hybrid that's basaling while still a rosette plant. But then there are some that rarely ever make basals, too, or so I hear. I haven't coaxed a basal out of my tobaica yet and it's vining.
So, yeah. Depends on plant. Any specific one you're wondering about?
