    Cool Bc. Maikai 'Pearly Shell'

    This lovely is blooming again and the 'Mayumi' variety isn't far behind. The other half of the original Pearly Shell plant is mounted on driftwood and for the first time in a couple years it has buds as well. Talk about a slow bloomer! lol These plants have to burn, or close to it before they bloom well.
