Have never seen one looking as good as that, wonderful.

I'm really pleased with it, especially as I grew it from seed.

Well worth the wait, Meanie...those colours are amazing!

I love the blue in it Karen.

Yes, me too - it's what makes it really special and bird-like.

That looks incredible, I am very jealous! I've had mine for two years now and it is about 6 inches tall haha. Have you had this for long? You must be doing a good job and now it is rewarding you! I have been told to keep it cool in winter, is that what you do?

6 inches from seed? That's about right if that's the case.
It is kept cool over the winter too. Still needs lots of light though.
