What a surprise!


Well this little plant continues to surprise me. These photos were taken a couple of days ago - and even more blooms have opened since.

I thought I had detected the start of a double crown, but after very close inspection it looks like I was wrong. Anyway, a double crown seldom detracts from a plants flowering capability, though it will destroy the symmetry of the plant.

I’m going to let it continue it’s flowering and repot it later.

Beautiful...I notice you are rooting leaves, too. Mom used to place plastic wrap over hers with a hole for the leaf, creating a miniature green house.

Thanks for visiting Oliver's tales!

I love the violet Rusty. When I see them I think of my mom. Maybe I'll pick one up for her to brighten her day!

Purple is my favorite color, Rusty, in all shades and variations and seeing your lovely blooms was wonderful! Glad they are doing so well under your care.
