    Second bloom on a still fairly young plant. Interesting, first bloom looked more solidly pure red to me. This one seems softer.

    lovely!
    do you remember if the temperatures or light levels were different when it first bloomed?

    Yay besseae hybrids! If you like red, there are deeper crosses. Thanks for sharing.

    The flowers are really quite pretty. I like the softer
    colors.

    Great question. I keep records, so here is info:

    First bloom: 3/9/19 - 4/24/19. 3/9 temps Hi 74/Low 64. 12.5 hrs light. 3 flowers (Month before was cooler and 12 hrs light).
    Repotted into rock wool mix (from orchiata mix) 4/25/19

    Second bloom: 10/15/19 - ??. 10/15 temps Hi 78/Low 71. 12.5 hrs light. 6 + flowers (Month before was warmer and same light).
    I guess you helped me answer my own question. I’ll see if it’s deeper red when it blooms again in the spring. Thanks!
