That is gorgeous. Where can I get one....or two?
Wow, it's really nice!
That's a beauty, John.
Very nice John. How many growths does yours have? I have one that has 6 growths in bud. No flowers open yet...waiting impatiently. I got mine quite a few years ago as a single growth.
Also, I'm growing mine cool to cold. It's outside here on the coast nearly year round. I give it full sun.
I'm growing the Bonatea in a carnivorous plant mix, 50 % sifted Canadian peat, and 50% graded sand (i can't remember the grain size, but a Google of 'cp mix' should provide the size). It is top dressed with a potting mix plus small pumice and sponge rock added. It's top dressed because it fell over in my move. I first put about a 2" layer of an inorganic (sponge rock or pumice) in the one gallon pot to increase drainage. I let it dry out a little in the fall once the growths have either finished growing or blooming. I keep it moist the rest of the year.
