    After years on keep/selling/killing, this is the first one I have ever flowered. Adductum is one of the species that first got me interested in growing slippers. That said, this means a lot to me that I have one blooming right now.

    Sorry for the crappy iphone pics. 046d3864987961b62ac3d0c060f7e069.jpg ec483ab3d7d3218704cd5d7e0784bfec.jpg 16c44d5898dc00614cb993760c785f55.jpg

    Exciting! How long is the leaf? It looks like a nicely compact plant.

    It's such a nice species...and I haven't been able to flower mine - yet! So a big and heartfelt congratulation from the northern hemisphere!

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    Very nice. Not the easiest species to grow/bloom.

    Very nice!

    I just bloomed my first one from flask last year after 12 years from flask. Turned out to be adductum x anitum and was kind of blah.

    I have a few seedlings of straight adductum lef of a Chuck Acker flask so maybe I will so those bloom in about 6 years :)

    Very hard to grow back to its original size. I have two and they are both growing smaller and smaller. Original size was more than 24" LS,, now is just half of that but they do flower.
    Congrats.
