No definitely not mobile Shocked thank God. I usually let this plant get a little dry between waterings so not sure about over watering.

Well, I successfully created several more plants from cuttings. So now i am going to try and get them to flower. Apparently, putting them into darkness for 11/12 hours per day so that they hibernate, ...

Would you transplant it to a bigger pot?
