What size ? I think it is small standard?, growing in a pot with diameter 7 cm, a little to small, should be 10 cm

Last year I nearly lost primuina Chastity. After flowering I had probably watered too much and the plant collapsed from the bottom. I cut leaves and the top part and replanted them. The cut crown recovered and now start to flower again.

One of the side suckers of Chastity (I had saved from the collapsed plant last year) is in flower now.
