I bought a new camera last night, Sony DSC-H20 and i took this photo of the Hydrotriche hottoniiflora flowers. The plants had buds when i got them, and opened the next day. Anyone know how long the bloom will last?



This is the first time I have had this plant, and I am really liking it! Anyone have any experience with it?

i dont have any experience with it, i'd love to know how it does for you though. I've seen lots of like "species profiles" and things about it, but i've never actually seen someone growing it.

IME, (only one time, though), it is a poor shipper. Had about 18 stems come in, all green mush, real nasty. Salvaged a 3/4" bit and a 2.5" stem and they are recovering.

Was it shipped to you from overseas or from someone here in the USA? These are cultivated in Florida and shouldn't be any more sensitive than say Pogostemon stellata or Limnophila aromatica. The stems are nice and thick.
