    Smile ARIGATO-GOZAIMASU, everyone

    It took about 5 years and 5 months from fertilization to bloom.
    I have about 20 seedlings of this cross and almost all are growing well. So that this cross seems to have an affinity each other.
    I'm looking forward to blooming in the other individuals.

    Congratulations Hiroshi, doing your own cross and seeing it bloom is a great achievement and certainly makes you feel good. Hope you have some nice and interesting blooms from the other seedlings too.

    If you lived closer, Hiroshi-san, I would suggest you send that plant over to me so I could give it a ... closer inspection. Beautiful!

    I grow catts in my greenhouse at very low temperature in winter (minimun 10C = 50F). So if you can keep your greenhouse warmer in winter, you may be able to see the first bloom earlier than I.
    I wish your seedlings would grow up successfully and smoothly!

    Thank you Michael,

    11CM. in diameter, a faint sweet scent.
    I hoped for strong fragrance because the seed parent has wonderful scent just like perfume, but unfortunately the scent is not so strong.
    I don't name it yet. When some other individuals have nice flowers, I will register this cross to RHS.

    Oh thanks that cheers me up hehe ! actually winter in my city is a bit fluctuating. Its below 10 degrees (4 to 6 average ) at dawn and early morning, but my midday surprise surprise it is back to about 20 degrees celsius. I hope this does not deter the seed development.
