    Default C. jemanii var. semi-alba

    Got this in a 2" pot about a year and half ago. It's currently in a 3" pot in Hydroton and the mature blooming growth is only about 9" tall. Just opened this morning (early Christmas gift ).

    Nice blooms. I just learn a trick on how to get a nice presentation from the blooming plant. When the bud is forming, place the pot on its side so the gravity will draw the buds down, then straight it up when it is full bloom, you will have every blooms facing you. I had one plant is in the experiemnt now and will show the photos when it is fully opened.

    Very elegant Clint! It's a real beauty...how do you find Hydroton for growing? The plant certainly looks healthy.
