Nice plant! Wally has a cool charm about it. I have one I got in the fall and its ridiculously small lol. It's adorable. Gave it a MAJOR upgrade for this season so I hope to see the little guy make some moves.

Hey I got a question matt, can I only grow these outdoors or is florescent light an option, because every plant I put outdoors my brothers mess with and uproot my vfts, like animals! But they know not to go in my secret kitty litter bucket that has a florescent grow bulb in it, and they also know not to go in my room, so which one is best?

Fluorescent light is always an option but the challenge of growing under lights for the long term is extreme. It's far easier to grow outdoors, particularly in Texas. If you don't want your brothers messing with your plants maybe you should build a little cage and lock it to keep them out!

Changed out the media (sorry matt) my cats like to play with it and yank it out with their teeth, I changed it into my 25 25 25 of peat sand and perlite, the cats are not interested in it anymore lol and the plant is starting to grow! I'm letting it recover...

No need to apologize to me as it's your plant! Leah wouldn't be happy though!!

If you had plans to repot it, you should have emailed us and we could have shipped it bare root for you. It would have saved you $5 too.

What's the other 25%? It looks a little dense (too peaty) for my growing technique but everyone has their own preferences.

It does have new growth coming out, so hopefully it will continue to grow just fine now as long as you don't repot it again soon.
