I received this cutting in trade 9/4/01. I was very surprised when, on 2/23/02, I discovered 10 buds on it! Based on most recommendations I've heard, I should have removed the buds so that the plants energy would go into growing a healthy plant rather than producing flowers. But I couldn't resist seeing if it would bloom. On 4/1/02 the first bud began opening around 6 p.m. and the second opened on 4/2, and the third on 4/6. Each lasted 3 days. The remaining buds dropped off without opening. Each flower measured 2 3/4" across.
