I got this critter in Fall 2010, I do believe, and had it hanging around in it’s nursery pot for several months. Often happens, waiting for just the right pot to come along. Potted it into this in early June, and it flowered within a week! Wish I’d gotten pictures of it then. I’m sure I’ll have some good ones next time around! I seem to be the only one reporting on it so far on Dave’s Garden.
