It's difficult to know precisely because of how apical dominance controls the growth of offshoots. It's a G1/G2 or mother plant/daughter so it's probably 2 to 3 months. If it was a G1/G2/G3 or mother plant/daughter/granddaughter an offshoot that size would be 2 to 3 weeks. Controlling apical dominance is one of the cool things about macropropagation.
