    Default Bollea coelestis

    Opened 2 days ago. Just a pity that I managed to kill two of the three flower buds the plant had. It seems VERY sensitive to any change in conditions when budding. I moved the plant to a different location in the greenhouse, just before the buds opened such that my partner would see it while I was away. Unfortunately the flowers did not open while I was away and two of the three buds fell off.

    What a gorgeous flower! What are the growing conditions? Would it survive in the Philippines? An excellent example of how colors go together!
