    Default Rlc. (Blc) George King ‘Serendipity’ AM/AOS

    I would say this is the floofiest in my collection. I accidentally, a few years back, placed the plant down outdoors and forgot to move it. I severely sun burnt it to the point I was not sure it it could be saved. I have brought it back and although it is not my kind of Catt. and considered many time getting rid of it, the heavy old-time rose fragrance keeps it in my collection.

    Very beautiful blooms! I wish I could make my catts flower like that but they are turning to be a bit challenging for me

    Thanks Ron. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I give them weak fertilizer weekly, I thought they are not doing very well because they don't get that much sunlight so I even moved some of them (those I can afford to experiment with) in direct sunlight but still no success. They are growing very well but still have to see flowers from them under my care. The only one I am successful with is the mini catt "why not".

    carl, what medium and pots are you using and your watering schedule? Are they mature enough to bloom?

    Thanks again Ron. I use plastic pots and coarse bark and I usually water them twice or 3 times a week in the afternoon when I get home from work. My catts are all in flower when I got them so I'm sure they are mature enough to bloom again hopefully
