Good idea, I looked back at the very first pics of it and concur. It used to be quite globular and filled the planter. Now... it's looking like it has been on a keto diet.😳

UPDATE: The pups are still growing and getting bigger. The mainstem ....not so much.
The mainstem is now in sad shape. Lots of discoloration and soft dead/dying flesh on one side.
Time to attempt a pup salvage of as many as possible to perhaps save one
or two of the twelve.

I poked the dark parts and my tool went right through it.

Fingers crossed for a pup or two. The largest one is softball sized.

Hey SteveO
Home Depot was selling smaller multihead for $30.00. I first bought one from a nursery here and paid $79.00. When I told the nursery manager I bought one at HD for $30.00 he said that was less than what he paid from his grower.
