If your show is in the spring, you still have plenty of time to make
a decent plant, if a smaller plant. If there is a large culture
break, if one row of leaves is much smaller than the next, you may
need to take out the whole row of leaves. If this makes a plant
very small it will still have six months to grow. Once set on the
right track it can still make a very beautiful plant for show. True
it might be easier to begin again with a smaller plant if you have
Best wishes at the show!
