    Time to move this thread to Catts in bloom. Here is Frank Lloyd Wright 'May Day' with 5 buds opened, 1 bud to go and another spike in production. There are two flowers per spike so I have 3 going on 4 spikes putting forth their glory! Thsi little plant has 14 pbulbs and is currently distorting the sides of an eight inch plastic pot.
