Check out Youtube where I found these videos, this is a pretty good one which shows the Rose coming back from the dead, nice 'bootleg' track by Greenday and Oasis as well!!

Copy and paste this cause I don't know how to embed, techy words, too hard for me, etc, etc

I have shown my lad the images on you tube which are great by the way. Some people have taken the photos on a time delay, which shows them opening over a period of about 6-12 hours.

My mum bought it for my youngest and he thinks it is great. I shall put some pics on of it as it is now, several hours later.

David Attenborough showed this plant on 'The Private Life of Plants' . It's an amazing little thing :-)
