    Actually, many growers looking for a larger flower will remove a bud or two. I know, sounds insane but they do it. Me...the only way a bud comes off is when I'm not paying attention and knock one off. Then, oh boy, cover your ears! At least you will have a larger, showier flower to admire...

    Hi guys,
    I recalled that chopping buds off is widely used by gardeners to have larger flowers, like roses. Just like Connie said. I forgot I did it myself long time ago.
    So I'll keep my hands in the pockets for now in order to show you my last and only flower left.

    So this is the one and only Lc. Imperial Charm 'Sato'. It opened in the morning.
    The shape of the flower is far from being perfect, maybe just because it's the first day

    Oh, and bon weekend to everyone
