    The last time I posted this plant was in Feb 2013 and if you check out that thread you would think its just continued on normally to today. But actually the plant almost died out in 2013, and got down to one nubby growth. I set it back up in a 4 basket, and then when I started the lemon juice thing a couple years ago it came back to life and put on these three growths with really strong root growth.


    Quite a few folks got this cross, how many are still doing good?

    I do have about ten plants of this cross and seems to me amazing the variability in colors, from true orange to true red.
    Yours is one of the best!

    Even bigger and still flat. The second bud is about to open so maybe will get to see two blooms open at once.

    That basket must be soaking wet constantly.
