Most outstanding!

Thank you for the kind words. The bright colors on the cyathia were rather unusual that day and a bunch of them lined up in that slice. Normally the cyathia are like the yellow one in the middle.

This is an awesome plant, a miniature work of art by mother nature. She is also mother to various offspring (she and the father both branched early).

Thank you. Here are some images from today showing a bit more perspective.

First the plant from the banner, which has 2 heads. And her mating partner, a male who branched the normal way, at the base.

Here are a girl and a boy from among the seedlings, so you can compare the sexes.

These plants flower on and off continually, whenever they leaf out, year round. They usually look better here in the winter.
