    I flasked the seeds Jan. 7th 08 . The blooms look better now .I should of waited a day or 2 before taking the picture but was afraid they might fall off hot one day cold the next I finally brought it in the house to much swing in the greenhouse . The plant is small almost 5 inches from leaf tip to leaf tip . Thanks for looking
