Starry night blue or midnight waves

This plant has well behaved foliage. It is in a 6" pot. It might be Midnight Waves by LLG. It is more of a violet color than the color looks. Joanne

Yes, they have not performed that well on a more recent bloom cycle. That was from last Christmas. Glad I took some photos. The Manitoba went to a new home.The leaf span got too large to keep. It grew straight out like a wagon wheel. The leaves on Midnight Waves drape a little better
and are more attractive than on Manitoba.

They are gorgeous! I never have any plants grown in 6 inch pot, will try one and hope that it will bloom better.

Hi,
The lighter one is in a 4" pot. If you use a 6" pot, everything gets bigger, including the leaves and size
of the blooms. I recommend sticking with 4" pots.
In the 6" pots, the leaves spread out and are not as
tight together. When they are not blooming, there is a lot
of foliage taking up space.
