    I hope you're familiar with that feeling of a seedling blooming for the first time. There are some plants you see in your collection that bloom so often the gratification is lessened. This is not one of those. I've watched it since it was but three leaves and a few little roots years ago. I was very excited to see this coming back to the greenhouse today and equally excited to grow it into a specimen.

    Very nice. What size is it? Looks like you have got some new growth started as well.

    The little bit of cedar its on is about 4cm. It has been trying to grow that smaller side since I got it years ago.
