Thanks I was wondering that. Today they even look more like buds than yesterday. So exciting!

Leafmite, do you keep water in that bottom dish? What media are you using? Did you repot or is that how it came? Thanks in advance

Though the buds began developing after I bough it, I think the credit goes to Edgar Stehli of Windswept in Time for the blooms.
I water it every day but do not keep water in the dish. The medium dries quickly. Eventually, it will be transferred to LECA.

I don't see why there would be a cutoff. You have the right plant and we can learn from your wisdom. Just because it is a project plant doesn't mean it has to be a brand new plant to you (in my opinion). I am always changing things and learning new things about my plants and their care. My feeling is anyone with any age plant would be welcome.

Looks like I forgot to post my Leptotes earlier when it was in bloom. Anyways! I VOTED FOR THE OTHER GUY! Only because I already have a Leptotes, but I'll still participate anywho.





The flowers are all gone now; they lasted about 2 weeks. Water well and you will be rewarded. It recovered from rootless to blooming, so I would consider it quite vigorous in terms of growth. Lots of sun or part shade, it doesn't mind!
