    Default Blc. Pamela Finney 'Big Bull'

    Great blooming this year for me. 8 flowers (would have had 9 but I knocked a bud off)

    Flowers are huge and the scent is heavenly. The smell encircles my desk about 10' and grabs everyone's attention that walks by.

    Yep..It's grown and kept in the office year around in a South window. It is a VERY easy bloomer and a fuss-free plant. I call her, "The Drag Queen"

    Wow that's one showy Drag Queen and a very floriferous one!
    You are making this one obviously very happy, Clint ...

    Is it potted in a clay pellets-only mix?

    Oh, I remember this gal. I have a Pamela Finney as well and there is just no better way to describe them than your description. I've called mine that since your post a couple of years ago! I am impressed by the flower count--8 and bloomed in your office no less. That is good work.

    Yep..Laurent..straight Hydroton in a 12" clay pot. Catts in large pots planted in bark mixture tend to rot in the center (at least for me).
