Speed of growth varies a lot. Depends on temperature, sun, soil compositions, water, and the overall "health" of an individual stand. I have some stands side by side, and one will take off while the other just sort of sits there, not producing much.

One pad is definitely developing faster and they are in the same pot. I guess it is a healthier pad.

Oh yeah! Your on your way! I planted 2 on 6/11/19. This is 7/15/19. The one in the pot did better, but the one in the ground had much more sun exposure.
