Progress and lack of progress

Hi! It has been a month or two.... I've been busy sewing and working. But my plants are doing great! With the exception of one that seems to have stopped growing. This spider I saved from Walmart and immediately perked up, grew a bit, threw off 3 shoots, but they barely made it out of the plant then it stopped growing. I repotted it thinking it was rootbound, but the root ball didn't seem to grow any at all. I didn't see any root rot either. It doesn't seem to be dying, just not growing. I put cactus soil in it anyway (I only have that and seedling soil, I have to wait til taxes to be able to make the good soil that has been suggested in other posts) and it has been a week I think, but still no growth. I know it is nearing dormant season but this one stopped mid august.

This is my diffenbachia progress, growing very nicely.

I chopped up the stem from the one above and they have grown well too!

And the other one

RE: Progress and lack of progress

Though i noticed the last one's shape is funny and has no variegation, needs more light or less light?

RE: Progress and lack of progress

More light.
