These plants were started from a leaf cutting from my mother plant. You can see them just starting to grow in the first picture. That picture was taken May 30th. I let them grow a couple more weeks in the water and then transferred 3 of them outside in a pot of LFS. They have been gorging themselves on all kinds of bugs out there. Today one of them has rewarded me with a beautiful flower and one other is in the process of putting up a flower stalk as well. Not too bad for only being 5 1/5 months old. I sure wish these were self-fertile so I could get some seeds.

A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in--what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.
