    It is mounted on cork with over a dozen PBs and now has 3 leads, hopfully I can get a nice flush of flowers next year.
    Does anyone know if this little guy blooms more than once per year?

    Very nice form. As I recall, it can bloom more than once a year in good conditions

    Nice ! Yeah most potinaras can bloom multiple times a year, thanks to their multigenera parents having different flowering habits.

    What a healthy looking Free Spirit! I must congratulate you for growing it into such a fine specimen. Here in Malaysia it is considered a very difficult plant to grow. Mine is languishing between living and dead in spite of all the care lavished on it.
