Hello, I just received a reply from Paramount and they ensured me as I have ordered from them as well a few times before that this is a blooming size plant. They said they have bloomed many at this size and that I should see a bloom within the year. Now they have a greenhouse and I have a house so that might be a bit different as to "within the year". I did tell Bryon that I wanted the biggest blooming size he has. I know they are moving and this was a concern to mine also that I might just get the leftovers but he assured me I would not. I guess time will tell.
