Bernieh:

Such beautiful flowers! I'm so envious! lol!

I purchased a small plant of this same variety a couple of months ago...I hope it will bloom soon! It's actually doing very well...I give it rain water or bottle water, because it hates our hard tap water.

That's wonderful ... I know you've been wanting to keep one of these growing well and it sounds like you've done it!

Bernieh:

It's still very small -- only 12 inches / 31cm tall. It looks like it may have a couple of buds though. I'll post a pic if it blooms.

Bernieh:

I may post a photo tonight of my small plant.

I have to find a very good spot in the yard to plant it. It's such an ultra-tropical plant which can only be successfully grown in the warmest, most protected spot in San Diego outside in the ground.
