    Ridiculously bright orange flowers about 1" across. I have two seedlings on this mount, from different sources. The other plant bloomed last fall, but the form wasn't as good. First bloom, several branches on the spike are already growing.

    Medium light, intermediate, daily watering but drying quickly.

    Thanks for posting! You have inspired me to get this out of the pot it came in and mount it when I get home!

    What an intense color! :) Like fire.
    And the mount looks great, too!
