    How can you not like that?!
    Those are some big sunny flowers on small plants!
    I have in low sheath. Hopefully it'll be good.

    And what is your watering/irrigation habit with this potting mix? Sit the pots in a bowl of water as long as they absob the total amount of water, or running the water through the pots when you irrigate them?Thanks.

    I water approximately 2-3 times a week during summer and once a week during winter. I use a large watering can and irrigate from above the plants in my glasshouse. The water runs through the basket. I keep it quite wet in warm months.
