Only b#gger is that it has Totrix moth larvae trying to do their worst to it!

Still, I'm chuffed with it.

How hardy do you find yours?

Not sure about that mine has more than one rosette so it should be ok, the guy I got it from didn't mention it.

I opted for this one as it has four babies coming along.

My thoughts exactly!

There are some common plants that are hard to improve upon, but a lot that are rather dull too!
