Very well done.
This is a hard plant to kept. A friend gave me a small unrooted offset a few years ago and it took a whole year to get it to root. Now it is growing away and I hope it will flower next year.
If you can, you could try pollinating the flowers by hand to see if you can get some seed for next year.

I've had one plant that I grew from an unrooted cutting which I had from Mesa Garden in 1991. It has been very slow, and so far has not flowered for me. I now have a couple of others, including ML242, but these also are very slow.
It is great to see it in flower, well done.

Is it self-fertile? I have one seedpod on my plant but I did not hand-pollinate it.
