    Default SLC. Dream Catcher

    A true mini -- plant stands about 4" (10cm) tall. Not terribly floriferous unfortunately, seems a single flower at a time may be all I will ever see. A highly variable cross, IME, both in regards to flower coloration and flower shape. Definitely the type I would suggest making sure you see the actual flower a particular plant will have before buying lest you be disappointed.

    Vibrant colors.
    Understand your disappointment about the single flower.
    Plants with mini flowers should have a cluster of 5 flowers or more to be attractive.

    That're really a nice flower - it will be great when it produces more for you, and I'm sure it will!
