    This flower lasted for 10 days before it became blemished as so often happens with HCM. It was in the humid greenhouse; so, maybe if I move it to the house next time, the dryer air will help the blooms to last longer before they get "age spots". It had a nice fragrance.

    Lovely shape and color!!!
    I made the reversed experience with my vietn.! when the plant was back to the gh, the bloom recovered and continued for some weeks, even with 'age-spots' :) !!

    That has such beautiful form and lovely colour as well. And 2 flowers to boot. Mine didn't last long either.
