Taking this as an opportunity to update on the full collection:
The flower wont progress (its literally flowering 6 inches up from a cut stem) with no leaves) but the bigger stems are looking good but not growing as fast as they were in the old greenhouse. Their pups are doing very well though. The smaller pups I transplanted separately have not gone so well which I think bizarrely is due to ant nests in the roots. The pups on the flowering plant (which is on a big pot) are in my other greenhouse and look great.

Dwarf Brazilian is really enjoying itself growing well, good spacing between leaves and one sword sucker.

Rajapuri is not doing a lot but I think has finally got its roots settled in the greenhouse and ia ready to go.

At home and not yet transplanted:
Red Dacca (suspected) is sulking a little bit but pushing suckers
Dwarf Cavendish is doing ok
Superdwarf cav is a bit pointless; and
Grand Nain is flying in its pot
