    This little beauty finally opened. The buds seemed to develop for 3-4 months before slowly opening. Well worth the wait!

    Thanks all. It hasn't always been healthy. There was a learning curve for surviving the windowsill humidity and transitioning to a mount from pot, but that's part of the fun, right?

    Exquisite bloom. That learning curve can be pretty steep and sometimes slippery, don't you think? But worth climbing, all the same. Nice growing and congrats on being so patient.
