    I'm pretty sure *this* one is correctly ID'd. First bloom and the first plant of this species that I haven't killed.

    The first bud on the spike grew the wrong way. One of the joys of growing a plant in a pot that should be mounted I guess.

    Oh Breezy, such beautiful blooms! It makes me crave honeydew gelato.

    I love this species. You seem to be having much more success recently, do you attribute that to anything in particular in your culture?

    Thanks. Marni, I suppose it could be a combination of factors. One being that many of my plants originally came from Hoosiers which means they were damn near newly hatched when I got them. So they're finally growing up. *sniff* Also I've been fertilizing more than I used to and paying more attention to humidity and air flow in general. It remains an enormous challenge since I grow inside the house. :(
