seedlings can be tough to culture without good humidity. My blue violacea , took me 4 years from small seedling to first bloom. My winter temps could be warmer.

Did the San Genaro feast on Sat, a birthday party for an elderly aunt, at the nursing home across from Brooklyn Hosp and then into Chinatown for an early diner before heading home.
