    I don't give these as much sun as my other catts are getting, yet this one blooms. I fertilize once a week right now... I neglected my plants A Lot this summer with the move. I'm shocked anything is blooming. I have one maxima in a basket, this one is in a clay pot and the third smaller piece is in a plastic pot. lol I think this just may be one very very determined plant....

    This flower is just photogenic. It's so rare for me to bloom a catt. I've just been staring at my pics. I think this one is my new favorite...
