Default Pot. (Rlc.) Dick Smith 'Aloha spirit'

This is perfection to me...very saturated colors and a wonderful, sweet scent. The smell is a bit reminiscent of sugar cookies to me.

Height: 12 inches, 16 inches including the pot
Bloom season: unknown, but I have a second growth making buds now, so let's say winter.
Flower size: 5 inches
Morning fragrant.

That's fantastic! Are you growing in moss in plastic food containers?

It is in a plastic food container with lots of ventilation holes poked in. It has a top layer of sphagenum moss, but the medium is mostly volcanic pumice. There is two small pieces of moss on the drainage holes also. I'd say it is 90 percent pumice overall.

What is the difference between Dick Smith Paradise and the Dick Smith Aloha Spirit ?. I have two Paradise that are blooming since October and they look the same.?

I have no idea what the difference is between those clones. They look very similar to my eyes. Perhaps someone else knows?

From what I have seen, the parents are the same, (Hisako Akatsuka x Volcano Lightnig). The name of the cloning is what changes. I noticed that the first flowering in October was different from this month, here I show it.
