    I got this plant from Mikhail Kujawa about 2 1/2 years ago, and wanted to post some "baby pictures" - it is thriving on my coastal southern California patio. Last year I got 2 flowers (and a few buds that blasted) but this year it has put on a terrific show. Plant is in a 2 inch (5 cm) basket (the terracotta pot just for weight), with 1 3/4 inch (4 cm) flowers on 3-4 inch (7.5-10 cm) spikes.

    Mine is in bud too! It obviously likes your coastal California climate! I never get more than two flowers a year.

    Well done! I got two from him last year, grew one warm and one cool since it seems to be able to handle either. The one I grew cool had four flowers (just wrapping up) and the one I grew warm didn't flower at all. They're both now in the cool case.

    Last year, summer was warmer, I think it turned hot in August/September and that's likely why some blasted.(Though it could have been that the plant was still too young to support the additional flowers) This year has been delightfully cool most of the summer, especially at night. And now it actually feels a bit autumnal. I do think this species likes that. I like it too.
