Yesterday late in the afternoon, I checked the bud on this epi. It showed signs that it would be opening so I made sure I stayed up to see it. We arrived back in AR last week and I completely missed the Epi oxy -- it's beginning to be the story of my life -- be sure to check before going to bed!!!

Thank you. I anxiously awaited the opening as it was the first time for it. Sometimes I miss the oxypetalum at night after watching the bud for about a month.

Wow! That's gorgeous! How long does it take for them to flower from rooted cuttings?

Four years for this one. I had a Miami that bloomed last year and I have some yellow ones that haven't bloomed yet. All of the cuttings were received at the same time. I am hoping to get some blooms on the yellow one sometime this year but these things have their own time table. All have been watered at the same time and fed at the same time so there is no explanation of why some do better than others.

I received a rooted piece last fall so I guess I'll have to wait awhile.

What REALLY sucks is to wait for about a month for a bloom to open, and then just about the time for it to open, you have to go out of town and it blooms while you are away Sad Sad Thumbs down This has happened to me more than once -- or the night your oxypetallum opens, you forget to check it late in the afternoon. At least with the Matador, it stayed open more than a day.
