Cpytanthyus bloom

This is a unknown Cpytanthyus that I've had for over a year and it bloomed, I guess I did some thing right or maybe I was just lucky, I have a few other that are setting buds, question is does the mother plant die or will it keep growing ? the picture is not a great one but I took it just before it started to rain, I keep it in part shade with morning sun and it seem to be happy there

RE: Cpytanthyus bloom

Very pretty plant.

Yes, the particular growth that is blooming will stop producing new leaves and start dying off once the blooms are finished. It's can be a fairly slow process taking several years before all evidence of the growth are gone.

But, it will start producing many pups (as you can see, it already has at least two of them), so the plant will continue to grow in that respect and produce a gorgeous little cluster of stars.
