RE: Sick Sans?

I recall reading somewhere on this forum that each subsequent pup will be larger than the last (meaning, if the current pup makes its own pup down the road, that one will be bigger than the previous two plants). I also read that if you ever were to break them apart (separate them), it sets them back; in that a new pup won't be larger than the previous plant.

So to answer your question, there is nothing wrong with the old plant. That just seems to be how they grow. They both look healthy to me.
