    Default Slc Blazing Treat

    My folks bought this for me in bloom quite a few years back. For a while had trouble getting it to bloom, but for the last several years hasn't been a problem. There is some variability in this cross. Others I've seen have been taller growers and flowers were more orangy. Mine has always been much more compact until this last growth which for some reason is half again as tall as any growth I've ever had -- no idea why. Mine has also been consistently more red orange flower-wise. Light intensity does have some effect on flower color. More light = redder flowers
