WOW!! That was some cutting you got LOL...Preeety...

RE: First Caerulea Bloom!

That's a pretty soft blue. My caeruleas are a bit darker. Do you get mature fruit from yours? Last year all I got were puffballs :( The fruit would feel heavy as it was growing but when it was finally ready to drop they were all filled with nothing but air and pith, not even an immature seed. I had loads of fruit but they were all the same, empty!

RE: First Caerulea Bloom!

I tried to get it to fruit, even though it is only a foot tall, by pollinating it with vitifolia pollen, but it didn't work, so I'll have to try it again next time.
