This form of ionantha is among the largest available.  As you can see from the pictures, it can grow quite long.  My mother that I've had for 4 years is now close to a foot long! Produces many offsets and is reluctant to bloom (mine hasn't bloomed yet but has produces a dozen pups)

 

Two pups available, seen in photos
