    Bought a plant mounted on tree fern, but the TF was falling apart. Realised then that it was actually 3 separate plants. I wonder if they put several seedlings on one mount to be sure that something would survive. This is the first one to bloom for me. Growing at the top of my cabinet, just under the lights.

    Where's the plant? Is the flower that much bigger than the foliage? Nice, vibrant color!
