    here's a link to whet your appetite. very long-lasting blooms, and this one was slightly fragrant to boot. with a horribly weak stem though from the bellatulum.

    Actuall, instead of oyster shell (which I have to admit, I have easy access too since I am just a short hop from the ocean), I used egg shells that I powdered with a mortar and pastle. Almost immediatly I got a response from the plant (with in a day or two), so evidently a sourse of calcium is very important to the plant.

    I'll start shooting pics, and I have a whole lot that need to be scanned, hopefully I can upload them tonight once I have a chance to do some contast correcting.
