For me, these first bloomed when the plants were about 4 to 5 inches tip to tip while in 2.25" pots. I have two in bud that are still in the 2.25" pots. Neither are first time bloomers. The one pictured in the post is in a 3" pot. It grew significantly faster than its siblings.Very nice and something to be proud of. May I ask what size leaf span you need to bloom these as well as the size of the pot that they’re residing in?
Thank you, Ross.They are beautiful flowers. It's obvious you are growing barbigerum as well as it can be grown. I also have the issue with the nearest judging center being distant. Some judges may live near you that would be willing to bring your plant with them.
