    I also have the alba and the orange plants, but they are not big enough to flower this year may be the next year. If the plants are small they will have few flowers, but as they mature, they get better. Once adult your plants will also bloom as good as if not better than mine, just have patience.

    Thanks Jonada, I print out the pictures on a photo quality paper, then get the photos laminated and then stick them with tape to the pots, now they are in place for 3 years without any problem at all.

    Its a heat sealed laminator, the photo is is placed between two plastic sheets and the edges are sealed by heat, its very cheap in India, it costed me about 30 cents per tag. The photos were kind of expensive though costing roughly a dollar so together about 1.20 per tag.
