    I'm not Bruce (obviously), but wanted to say congrats anyhow. That is just beautiful, and well worth the wait.

    Are you sure about that?


    I have a Desert Rose but it hasn't ever bloomed for me. It's been many years and I am starting to think I should put an orchid in its place...

    Glad you were able to get yours to bloom!
