    4 flowers, 9cm natural spread . An even prettier blue in sunshine , but using Photoshop it could not be changed to what I remember, without distorting it elsewhere.

    Quite waxy and long lived flowers ; I can detect a faint perfume even now in the early evening , 2 or 3 hours after sunset. I expect much more in daylight, esepecially sunlight.

    A second spike now advancing , from a different lead. Plant is in an economical 11cm pot, but may need to be moved to a bigger one soon.
