Wow that’s stunning Diane (tu)

Mine also has its second flush today. Amazing how in sync they seem to be.

My 20+ year old plant put it three tester flowers last week and decided that today was the day to go for it! Apology for what's become a bit of an annual photo show but I really like this plant 😁

And despite having said for the past couple of years that I'm going to pluck up the courage to repot it, I'm ashamed to confess that I haven't. But... as soon as it's flowers are finished the scissors are coming out so I can cut it's pot off and get it into something a little more comfortable.

Diane's and Mark's plants are wonderful too 👍 I wonder how many different clones of theresae exist in cultivation? I suspect more than with M. luethyi?

Superb, Ross! (as it’s fairly readily grown from seed, there should be very many clones in cultivation I reckon).

That’s beautiful Ross, looks like you had sun today! Dull and cool here, not good for flowers waiting to open :sad:

Thanks Jean. Yes, we had a decent day here today, topped off by a nice summer solstice sunset at 9:52pm

That's very nice, Ross! The clouds came rolling in here in the afternoon yesterday, so no nice sunset here.

Beautiful M. theresae by the way!

I had one flowering yesterday with a bit unusual flowers. I don't know if they could be called semi-double, but there seems to be almost an extra set of petals.
