Oh, wow! It's getting so close....you must be so excited Flowerdazed. I'm so excited for you - I've always wanted one of these too. I'd be out there several times a day, checking on it, haha!

I think that I would be running back and forth several times a day to see how the plant was doing with its bloom. The waiting is the hardest thing right now.

Thanks Sherie, yes, I am excited for sure! Thanks y'all! vette lover, yes, I like the idea in watching a plant/flower come to fruition. Glad you are enjoying the progression!
Okay, I went out of town for some 5 days and have returned with new photos.
Before I left, I snapped a shot!
This pic was taken some 5 days ago. Notice how the undulating stem is getting closer to the plant. Also, the mustache effect is turning a deeper shade of pink and the 'mustache' leaves are turning in an upward fashion. Also, there is a new addition if you look closely to the right. I went to the annual orchid show and the vendor was there who I initially bought my medinilla from last year. Just had to have another one, ya know?



Here are today's pics!

A peep show as to what is coming! I almost stood on my head for this shot. LOL

She is taking her good ole time, but that is okay by me!

Thanks y'all! Glad everyone is enjoying her views!

Here is what she looks like today!


She is just starting her blooms and has a long way to go as this is just the beginning of what she will look like I would say many days from now. Sooo, stay tuned!
