Not a lot going on with this one; Hope is one of the relatively small number of seedlings to bloom before being moved up to a 4-inch pot, but she wasn't especially early; I just haven't had room to move plants up lately. So some of them get to around 2 years old and then decide to bloom anyway.
The color is good -- I'm not yet tired of the red / pink combination, though there have been several.1 And even if the bloom isn't huge and gorgeous, I'm surprised at how little visible thrips damage I see. On the other hand, the foliage is kind of uninspiring,
and the plant is already kind of floppy in its pot,
so I'm not seeing strong arguments in favor of keeping it or in favor of throwing it out. Probably I'll keep it for a while and then throw it out when I next need space.
P.S.: I know this post sucked; I suddenly have a lot less time to work on the blog. I'll explain eventually.
