        Mine have been slower this year, early spring was too cold for them. I noticed one of mine I thought I'd lost over-winter has just sent up new growth from the soil. So mine are moving albeit slowly.

          Basjoos not moving much as yet, I think they have been dry, but we had some rain last week so now might start to move a bit.
          E. maurelli, planted one out but one is outside, but still in the pot, only growing slowly so dont look great at the moment.
