    I have been waiting a two long months for this jewel! A first bloom for this plant.

    Very nice, Sarah! I love the delicate spotting. With tetraspis, you never now how the red spots, if any, will present on a given seedling. Your dots are so sweet!

    My aprhodite is blooming now, too. My tetraspis isn't quite large enough, but it's getting close...
