Normally I don't take photos of an unimpressive blooming like this unless it's something special or eagerly awaited. I got this plant two years ago in a very sad state. About 20 nearly leafless and shriveled bulbs in several pieces. It is now a very happy looking little plant, about 2½" wide. I'm glad to see it is a blue clone as it was supposed to be, and not the more common white (and often cleistogamous) clones floating around. The flower is about 5/16" wide and took forever to develop, and supposedly long lasting. I've been growing it relatively bright, moist, and intermediate. This species is often said to be somewhat reluctant to bloom, but I hope this flower will be the first of many.
