    Hopefully she's not thinking "I wonder how that tastes?". Nice photo.

    Both are great (the bloom and Miss Gripette!). The bloom looks quite pink.

    That flower is such a glorious sight. The color is perfection.
    Ms. Gripette is a Welsh Terrier maybe? Is she smarter than her humans? I love the good square muzzle and the
    intent look in her sweet eyes. Give her a good hug for me!
    My dogs are looking over my shoulder and sniffing and
    would greet her, but they think the time change is crap and it's time for lunch.

    I got flasks from Peruflora in 1996.
    Yes! Usual culture… But I notice better growth during the winter time and regression when the temperature was getting higher during the summer time. When I realized I started putting their trays on the greenhouse floor during the summer time, cool and wet concrete keep the pots and roots cool and they like that. And no more problems since!

    No, it does not take ten years. I purchased a seedling with a 4 inch leaf span. It bloomed 18 months later. I may have gotten very good grower for my one an only kovachii seedling tset plant.

    Eric is right, before to get 4 inches seedling it can take 3 years…
    No it doesn’t take 10 years, some did bloom years ago…
