    I only got two plants from this seedpod. And they took like 7-8 years from seed to this first bloom! It was quite worth the wait, looks like a big 5 cm wide cyanocentrum flower, in pink. cool to warm grower, depending on season.

    Very nice!!! Was that the white or the blue cyanocentrum? Have you tried the cross again?

    That's funny that the shape of cyanocentrum is preserved but size and color came from sulawesiense. Very nice sir.

    I used the white form. I've never had enough blue form pollen to "waste" in making hybrids, so far ;-) And I tried to remake it, with no success, but I guess I could try again, now that I have several dozen flowers available on both parent species!
