    Flower is just 2 inches across - but the plant has three leads, was growing in a 4 cm pot ! Have now pushed it on, repotting, into a 2 ich pot... 5cm.
    Colour not right here ; I admit I have been playing about in Photoshop ( neutralising the too busy background) but the flower colour was not right before that. The pic makes it look almost transparent, but actually it is a quite solid colour. Maybe the problem was that I took the pics in the growing area, with a lot of light coming from my grow-lamps ( which are very far from daylight). However, I will cross my fingers that all three growths make it, and flower next year, and try again , if and when.
    But a great first flower, I think.
