    It isn't the same without Karen's pink wall, but this is a nice clone. About 7" tall flower.

    That is a nice one, Marni! What conditions do you give it?

    I has been getting daily water with constant low dose fertilizer, summers are 85 day usually and up to 100F. summer nights are 50 to 55. Winter days are in the 60's and nights go to 42 most of the time. It is not getting enough light where I have it, so it is a bit floppy. I am moving it outside of the growing space soon and will figure out what to do when it starts getting really cold. It has been to 32 with no problems. The clonal name is "DiBrito" and the plant is about 4ft tall.
