A few other plants of this species seem to follow suit, flowering in the nearest future - maybe also the 'Lemon Elf' (I'm not 100% sure, whether it is a bud, that's underway, or maybe just another leave growing - though, that of course would also be nice, the former would make for the most pleasing experience afterall!) 😉

PS. Chris, Cimabue is in bud, too, but I've "succeeded" in killing off the henryanum album young plants from you - due to rot, that I discovered too late and beyond repair. So sad! 😭😭😭

So fingers crossed! This would be a very late 'Lemon Elf' this year as it should have flowered regulary at the end of August.

Yes these are very prone to rot. I have them in bark that is usually too big for the size of the pot therefore.

The in situ photos are so illuminating. I am growing in pumice and linestone with a sprinkling of seedling mix bark. Next repot, I will do 30/30/30 pumice/limestone/kanuma, 5% seedling bark, 5% organic worm castings.
