This guy started blooming. It's the first bloom for me. I will post a few more pics when it's fully open. It's so tiny!

Seriously cute. I'm sure it will look even better once the flower opens up completely. And you know the old adage....good things often come in small packages

Thanks guys! It's a relatively new addition so I'm really psyched to have it bloom so soon. Usually catts hate me - but this one was so cute and different, I had to give it a go.

Thanks guys. Can't wait for them to fully open! I'll have to use the macro lens next time, as this is super small.

The flowers are tiny! Sometimes they flowers don't fully open and retain a bell shape (as mine did). Is there some environmental influence (like temp) that can encourage them to open full?
