    I agree, that is an incredible plant. I did not know that 7 flowers were possible. I have not bloomed very many, but I only get 3-4 flowers. Mike

    Just stunning Justin. The flower presentation is just magnificant.


    MM is wild collected from a long time back. It is probably the most important clone behind todays modern bred roths.

    Any theories about why only 4 flowers this year? Cultural differences or just plant year to year variance?

    I used to own the variety 'Charles E' and 'Rex' but gave them to the university. Always enjoyed the plant habit of multi s when growing well.

    I am certain it is because I cut back on the fertilizer much more this fall and winter. I only bloomed a few roths this year but they all had lower flower count than usual.
