Default Tsiku Marguerite 'Romantic Fantasy' in bloom

Here's a few pictures of my 2 Tsiku Marguerite 'Romantic Fantasy' that have opened recently. The fragrance is just amazing.

Just wanted to point out that the one thats in s/h and moss will most definatly get root rot if left that way. The moss holds too much moisture and doesn't allow for air circulation. You should probably either pot it all the way into s/h or take the plant out of the clay pebbles and just grow it in moss.

Thanks for the warning Winston but it's actually just in moss. Since it's in a very tiny net pot it gets quite unstable when the moss starts drying out so I've just placed it in a larger pot with some pebbles as they inter-pebble-space allows for enough air circulation until it's ready to be potted up in a larger more stable pot. There is no water left in the pot at all. It's just the moss as medium and the pebbles for stability.
