A single bloom

One of my DR's produced a single bloom a couple of days ago. It's only one pink flower, nothing to get excited about, but the fact that it bloomed the day that it was 8 degrees below zero on the other side of the window glass in Wisconsin made it pretty exciting for me!

I would say Scott. That it is fantastic no matter what color for this time of year. Must be happy with the sunlight and care it gets.

RE: A single bloom

Scott, you plant looks so much better to all my desert rose right now. It still has full head of leaves.

RE: A single bloom

Thanks Rick and Marie - oddly enough, none of my DR's have lost leaves and gone dormant. I'm really not sure why, I don't use any afterhours supplemental lighting nor do I fertilize during the winter. I simply water them once a week to keep them from drying out, watch them closely for spider mites and keep them warm. The 4' x 8' south facing window they sit in has a 24" deep sill and a LOT of sunlight available.

RE: A single bloom

Congrats on the bloom, you seem to be having great success with your plants at the moment. This one looks very healthy, the leaves are a very dark green aren't they!
