My cutting of Chirita 'Dreamtime' tried to flower, pretty unsuccessfully. I had a request to share the blooms when they open--which never happened. They kind of developed, but then twisted and dried up. The photo I took didn't focus well, but you get the idea.
I revisited the original plant earlier this month, and it is, of course, looking wonderful and even blooming still/again!
I had also e-mailed the hybridizer, John Boggan, who said he hadn't anticipated this Chirita's size when he released it--his underwatering, underpotting habits apparently had it growing to a more reasonable size for him, but others (including myself!) really enjoy the giganticism of the plant.
