    Default Promenea Limelight

    This one is always reliable for blooming in June. I always get a lot of buds on it but most abort leaving me with only 2 or 3 blooms. This year it has 3 flowers that tend to be long lasting. I think I need to increase the humidity for the buds to stop aborting. I really like the markings on this one and the plant as a whole stays small and is relatively easy to care for. I like it enough that I want to expand my present collection of only one. I would love to hear from others who grow these and have you share your cultural advice.
