    fantastic plants these - they just go on and on producing ever more flowers, for months on end. This is in a 3 inch pot, with about 12 flowers and two buds - has been flowering since March...
    I think the cross is cuth x lawes x cuth.
    I have a feeling that I showed it before on this same flowering - someone thought the leaves were odd ; they are normal.
    At the current rate, I'll show you the same plant again , next , in August....

    Isn't that great! I don't know of many people who are able to grow these. Either the temperature is too high or the water isn't good enough. But you don't seem to have any problem whatsoever.

    I did manage to keep my temperature down to the low 30s using a room air conditioning unit at the far end of the greenhouse, and leaving the doors wide open all day. But I had to run two big humidifiers, and my Reverse Osmosis ran non-stop providing me with enough pure water foR them. In the end I reckon running costs. In the summer, were just the same as in the winter - when the boiler was running to provide the heat.

    What a beautiful color, the leaves are different but what is wrong with that?
