Ibervillea lindheimeri, 2 years + 7 months

So I finally chose to repot my 2 year + 7 months old Ibervillea lindheimeri again. I’ve been searching for a low pot like the one it was already in, only slightly bigger. But I haven’t been able to find one at all, so I ended up just potting it in a regular cheap plastic pot. That’s probably for the best because every time I decide to repot, I have to pull on the plant just to get it out, resulting in a few cuts and scrapes on the caudex.

But look at this beast! It’s just about the same size as a heart. Most of the growth happens underneath the soil line. I was hoping to see a little more growth above the soil, though. It’s going to look like a knot of thickened roots instead of the common ball-shape you usually see in caudiciforms.

After I placed my Ibervillea outside a couple of months ago, it immediately went dormant. It’s now inside again and should hopefully wake up and shine soon. I guess this is strictly an indoor plant here in Denmark.
