    It's open! Hooray! Ron, I recall your other thread and have been eagerly awaiting the flowers. I'd say yours is slightly more pink than mine. (Mine is more mauve.) Assuming mine does bloom this year, I will post photos and we can compare. Laurent, is yours just like Ron's plant?

    Cheers,
    Rob

    I know, I couldn't believe how long it took for this one to open. I checked on it multi times a week for over a month now. Looking forward to seeing your clone in bloom, Rob. Laurent received his clone the same time as I received mine, so he will not know until he blooms it. His is from a different person than mine came from.

    It will be fun to see all three of these.

    What pot do you have it in Ron? It looks like a shallow bonsai pot?

    (or is it my overactive imagination?)
