    Very cute. I know it's small, but how big is that whole plant?

    Hi David, what are your cultural conditions for this plant? I have a dark red/maroon clone, which blooms sporadically...never a big show like your plant.

    pcolman,

    The mount is 4 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches wide.

    Hi Chuck,

    Mine is also a sporadic bloomer, and this is one of the best showings so far. Interesting because I have not moved the plant more than a couple of inches during the past several years. It has a south-eastern exposure and receives direct sunlight for a few hours each morning, and then bright diffuse light most of the afternoon. The greenhouse is shaded to the east by my house, some maple trees provide limited shade in the afternoon, and since it is a lean-to greenhouse, the garage protects it from late afternoon sun. Winter lows are 55 and summer highs occasionally hit 90 for short periods of time.
