    Cool Bc. Maikai's Group Photo

    I wanted to be able to get all four plants into the same picture while all were in bloom so while the larger baskets aren't completely bloomed, I went ahead today with the group photo. Yes there are burned leaves...that is what it takes to get a Maikai of any variety to bloom it seems.

    These flowers are the 'Pearly Shell' variety. I love how pale they fade out to...

    I am having to keep a close eye on the basket to the right. Buds are getting stuck under leaves and getting messed up.

    Once both baskets are fully in bloom i'll update this post. I'm just loving these flowers. Next year I will have them sitting full sun again.

    Well grown. I always like seeing these. I haven't seen the 'Pearly Shell' version before, I really like it. I had a 'Mayumi' once upon a time, and killed it back before I knew what I was doing. Not that I know now...
