    Another mini, and very floriferous. Got it two years ago. Barely bloomed last year.

    Flowers last about a month and are about ¼" across.

    Intermediate, bright shade, dries out between waterings, but not for very long.

    Great growing! Mine suffered a severe setback after moss started growing on the mount. Hoping it recovers. Yours looks fantastic.

    What cheerful flowers! That close-up is amazing! What did you use to take the photo?

    I used a Nikon D850 with a Tamron 90mm F/2.8 macro lens for the first two photos. I used a Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro lens and Stackshot macro rail for the last photo.

    Thanks!
