    Those are soooo pretty! I've wondered if they would grow in the heat here in Florida.

    Wow! the flowers are pretty, and I really like the shape of the plant. It must be getting some great culture to bloom twice a year.

    Nice, I like it. My plant is still too small. Could you show the whole plant?

    OK Phil. I'll do new picture tomorrow. Another one is flowering as well and the flowers look a little bit different, then the plant above. What do you think Phil?

    There is a natural hybrid between wangii and kimballianum. Your plant looks like that hybrid! Very nice and not often seen.
