    I love 'em! My only problem now will be where to put these since I have very limited space .... I can only think of outside my window or on the laundry area porch at the back of my townhouse.

    My apologies to everyone; Kgw Christine Low should read Christie Low. The name on the tag was badly faded and these old eyes ain't what they used to be.Again, very sorry.

    Yew Sung, I have a couple of Kagawaras, Ernie Tanaka and Kultana Red. One in a basket, one mounted to driftwood. They are in the same 40% shade till noon, 60% after that. They both are about 12 to 15 inches wide and about 12 inches tall. I have yet to get them to bloom.
    Do you have any suggestions?
