very different from the round ones that we see more and more but not being a big fan of the one with big round petals I kinda like it for its "natural" look and its color

great color and shape of the flower! Envious of this strong plant when comparing to my rather small besseae. Jeanl

thanks all !

yep there's a second spike on this one.

I've had this plant for 4 years and it's its second bloom (did not bloom last year). This plant has been doing much better since I started growing it "sh style" (= with a reservoir underneath the pot) but in traditionnal mix, not clay pebbles. of course it means the media breaks down faster and I have to repot every year but all my besseaes seem to like it (I live in southern France where it gets pretty hot and I found out this is a good way to keep the roots cooler)

Totally organic! Solution for the busy man! Think you can start marketing the idea in NY?:evil:
