No problem!I was very excited about Edithcolea grandis blooming...I got the plant as a small rooted cutting 3 years ago,and this is the first time it has bloomed!It tried to get budd last summer,but they never made it to maturity...maybe the plant wasnt old enough.The dutchmans pipe blooms every summer.I bring it inside for the winter months.I've had flowers on this plant over 12 inches long!

Jimmy that Persian Carpet flower has been on my wish list for some time but I've never bit the bullet for it.

My neither...I got mine from Logees as a small cutting.It had some small buds last summer,but they always aborted when small.I wastered it a bit more this summer and it seemed to work.I have more buds on it growing larger Big Grin I have it growing in an orchid pot with holes on the sides.I hear they can rot easy.
