    Cute little bunch! I like the dotted lines on the petals of christae. Also, the flower duo surrounded by short upright leaves add to the charm. love it!

    a wee bit tipsy?????

    They are all very nice but the henryanum on the far left and the helenae on the far right are very high quality flowers.

    It's strange he's just tipsy by day and not in the evening light. Usually it's vice versa.

    Very nice gathering of henry's and helenae's, congrats. The henry 'Heavy Metal' seems to me to be the king of the show.

    Very nice looking plants... do you grow indoors under lights?

    These ones have all been grown in my (extended) windowsill, i.e. under natural light. The ones on my dining room table get a bit of supplemental light, though ...but I have now too many plants too far away from any reliable light source (read: low, northern, winter light), so I NEED to find a solution to this before the days get too short and too dark!

    Can only echo this comment. Just added this plant to my list because of your photo! Charm in extremis.
