    Nice job, Tom. Mine has several buds. Now I know what to expect.

    That is easy. LOL!

    I wonder if they still have it available now. I knew they listed it soon after I paid them big money for a little division.

    Very nice Tom, our plant is about to bloom as well! I was talking to Harry about this one over the summer and he told me when they imported the plant in was in an order of leptotes pauloensis and one of them turned out to be the new species, which they grew and made divisions of. I would like to know if they were able to get more in since they have it listed on their site.

    I don't know if they had more in since the initial import.
    It is interesting to know how they find this species. I know it looks very very similar to my Leptotes pauloensis but I've never looked at the details.

    I agree it's pretty amazing how a new species can pop up! We have a few buds developing on our pauloensis as well, maybe we'll be able to compare them if the blooms over lap.
