A sib cross of Dolly, which is what you have, will be a novelty sized plant with leaves 12-18+" long and mostly cream to soft green flowers.
Very interesting. I can live with that size, or even a bit larger. It beats the heck outta the monster in my basement... in a trash can.

A teacup cymb, fueled by hormones? Ugh. No thanks... I've already had my fill of hormones for this lifetime.

I'm with Waterwitchin. Anything smaller than a 8" pot is ok with me. I saw the hormone caveat but, didn't care.

Dolly, are you looking for pot size rather than length of leaves? Keep in mind, you can have a delightful, naturally blooming plant in a 1 gal pot, ie 6" width at top, if you just keep dividing the plant and keeping it in that size.

There are also a lot of near species, primary type hybrids from the species sinense, tortisepalum and ensifolium which are very happy in 5" to 6" pots AND they are fragrant and relatively easy to grow and bloom. Some may have leaves close to 24" but they are grassy and the flowers are delicate. Look for Nagalex, Eastern Promise, Nut and Eastern Venus for starters if this line is of interest to you.
