Argy's Progress: No More Cryptkeeper!

My one and only Argyroderma (silver-skin) is regenerating slowly but surely. Last summer, it was my Cryptkeeper....

I was really worried, I mean, Argy looked bad! But it was part of the normal lifecycle. A few months later, by late fall, Argy was looking plump again:

Something was brewing, clearly. Releafing started a couple of months later, and now, the regeneration is about 75% complete, and the outer leaves are shrinking, this time for good:

This plant is a slow and quiet creature, but the wait is worthwhile for patient gardeners.
