This plant creeps from where it is first planted. In summer, the growing shoots can be cut off, to encourage branching, and pushed into the soil to propagate.
9cm marginal plants require potting into a mesh basket.
1ltr marginal plants do not require repotting. However, plants over 60cm height growth will benefit from repotting into a larger mesh basket or should be planted in gravel to prevent them from falling over.
3ltr and 5ltr plants do not require repotting; there is no need to remove the mesh basket.
