    Very unusual. I like the 'iced' look.

    Tom, I was curios if somebody will miss it. You know, the winter in Germany was very cloudy and many buds dried So after I've got the first flower I took a picture , even one sepal was destroyed. I though this species is not so common, also I've, despite missed sepals,to posted this picture. I'm just curios which Pteroceras do you have.

    I also still have Grosourdya appendiculata(syn. Pteroceras appendiculata)

    I love them all but some may have short-lived flowers.

    Tom, pallidum I don't have, the another yes. Moreover teres, longicalcarum and unguiculatum. You are right the bloom doesn't last to long but I love them as well.
    My Pteroceras semiteretifoliu in bloom, this time with all sepals and petals.

    Sweet! My P. semiteretifolium is not a blooming size plant yet. Yours looks great and I am assuming there are more than one plants on that mount, right?

    It is quite unusual Pteroceras simondianum because usually it have some spike at a same time but your just have one. Is that right or not, that what I observe.
