    The flowers on this are about 3/16th of an inch tall. This plant is mounted, but it does the same thing in a small pot. I grow it intermediate to cool, watering as it approaches dryness.

    As I looked at the first pictures, I thought, "yeah, ok, that's nice. Cool color." And then I scrolled to the 3rd picture, and I believe I said out loud, "holy sh*t!* Beautiful specimen, Marni!!

    I had the same reaction when I noticed it in the greenhouse.
