Lovely warm colour and nice sharp interesting image.



thanks as always for your kind words Bernard.

This species has been a trial to grow over the years. I had two clones originally and they both grew like weeds but never flowered for over a decade. Then out of the blue this one flowered and next thing I noticed they were both going backwards fast.

I have one tiny piece of one clone left and it looks a little like this winter may do it in yet.

Regards wellsy
