    Default Heavenly terrestrial

    This one I bought potted in soil and I kept it that way. I think the blooms are beautiful. I share them with you. The white spots are water. It has been raining heavily in Puerto Rico. I don't know why they look white in the picture, but the flower is not spotted, it's just rainwater.
