    Cool shot! Thanks for including this one too. I thought the plant would be small, but I had no idea that it was so tiny. WOW.

    Cheers,

    Getting a truly good pic of a flower on mine has eluded me. A rather durable little guy.

    Ron, the flower is small but it is pretty big for the size of the plant. Normally the flower should be at least 1.5 cm long and at least 6-8mm wide.

    Really? Mine has never had a flower that large -- I think 0.5 cm is about what mine have been.
