They are both beautiful! I am still trying to just not kill them off. Well done!

Good job...and beautiful!
Mine set a bud in the middle of summer, outside in Kentucky heat. I don’t know any secrets to blooming.

They look great. How old or how long did you have these plants? How large are the leaves to be blooming size? Thanks in advance.

thank you all for your comments!
I grow them for sereval years. I plant them in bowls in a bark, pumice stome mix. I will show photos of the whole plant next days. The tempretures are intermidiate most of the time. They grow well but over winter i have sometimes problems with rotton shoots especially when they are in bud. So I think it is importent to grow them not to wet over winter.
