    Single bloom this time. Endemic to the Philippines, only.

    It is hard to take photos of shiny flowers, as they reflect light.

    Default This is the first time

    it has bloomed singly. Maybe it feels space-constrained.

    Thank you, Diane.

    iytan - that is a lovely looking plant. Nice, bright, vibrant color on the blossoms. And it looks very healthy and happy!

    I love the foliage habit on that and the color on the blooms is an added bonus. Looks like a great acquisition to your collection.
    Thanks for posting it, I love having a look at species I've never seen before.
