Default Lc. Angel Love x C. skinneri

Not the greatest, but better than previous bloomings - it has bloomed twice before - where the blooms only opened about half way. I figured they weren't going to get better, so am pleasantly surprised by this blooming.

First bloom, color is more vivid than it appears in the photo.
Second bloom - color isn't great, but it's opened fully, which I am very happy about.

This had some rot on a couple of growths late last year, I cut off the affected foliage - one of those now has a spike with a couple of buds on it, a month or so away from blooming.

This has been an easy grower and bloomer for me, is a nice compact size, and has a very nice fragrance.

Thanks for looking

thanks - I'm happy the blooms are opening better. It seemed a shame when they didn't, as it has a lovely fragrance, and it's an undemanding plant.

Maturity? Only thing I did differently was leaving it outside this winter.

hehe - maybe - it had buds, but since I had been unhappy with the blooms previously, I left it outside, rather than give it valuable (in winter) bright windowsill space lol
