Sorry for the bad pic. It's hard to focus on it. But does that look like an inflo? This is a 3-year old seedling.

I agree. Looks like you will have flowers this summer! How exciting!

RE: Is this an inflo?

Thanks for the reassurance you guys! Just making sure I'm not imagining it. LOL. I am so thrilled now. Doing the plumie-dance.

It's an Orange Sapphire seedling.

Here's a pic of the plant from last month (it's the one in the back)


RE: Is this an inflo?

Very exciting, musaboru! I've been doing the plumie-dance, too! Hope it blooms true to the parent plant for you. If not, something equally as lovely! You'll be updating with further inflo pics and then flowers? :)

What are your other plumies?

RE: Is this an inflo?

Yes, I can't wait to give an update. I hope I get an orange-peachy color at least.

The one in the faded plastic terra cotta is Singapore White, to the left is a JJ Premium White and behind it is Divine with the spent inflos. That Singapore took a hard tumble off of the wall back there so it only has one branch left as the other one broke off.

I've amassed a lot of others in the last month though, mostly cuttings. But I also have from FC a Musk Rainbow and Mele Pa Bowman, and a NOID from Home Depot that I got because it was so cheap :O. It came in a burlap pouch for about $7. I'm hoping this one turns out to be Scott Pratt.

RE: Is this an inflo?

Yes, it is definitely "trying" to be an inflo. The reason I say trying is because seedlings are notorious for "nubbing" the first time they try to bloom since they haven't quite reached maturity to produce a full inflo.

You may get lucky and see a few blooms. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!


RE: Is this an inflo?

"Congrats" musaboru We'll keep our fingers crossed for you that it flowers. Remember you will need it to bloom a couple more times before you know for sure what it will be. Could be something not so pretty the first time but don't give up on it until you see more blooms. You can also use it for grafts it it doesn't turn out. Peg
