    Is coming into bloom These flowers are about 1" inch in height on a plant that stands 3.5" tall. I think I will give it the clonal name of 'Joe the Plumber'

    It looks like an amazing little plant. But, (and my middle name is jo) Joe the Plumber doesn't do it justice.

    It is pretty, Ron. How about 'the flame' for the name instead?

    Cheers,

    WOW!!! This is a nice one... does it need heat?

    and as for the clonal name... hmm... after watching some youtube thing about this guy being interviewed... i do think it's a little unfair... this little one looks like it's more than happy to share it's richness... albeit in colour and beauty!
