Default Sophronitis cernua, my best bloom yet

Hello all,

Every year I post a picture of my S. cernua in flower. It hasn't failed me since 2009. The first few times I got it to produce 2 flowers, then last year it made 3. This year it made 5!!!! I'm a happy camper.

See pics:

Awesome Tindo. Keep going, maybe next year it'll double the blooms.

Looking great!!! You know it likes you if it keep on improving the flower count. Maybe next time you'll get 5 or more blooms on multiple growths!

Thanks Ron. It's still a small plant, but if I can you'll be the first to get an offer.
