Does that stalk at left have 4 branches AND a spur??
well, if you look closer, i think it is 5 branches and a spur......
you understand why i was so eager to have some pollen in stock for next year!
it surely will pollinate some on my tetra MTBs! (photo)

Hi Loïc,

So that gorgeous brown thing is still alive then?! Importation isn't impossible and when there's a will there's a way. At least we're on the same hemisphere! I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to work with its pollen, if you could arrange that as my translator! ;) The more I look at it, the more I love it. It almost makes me think of 'Touch Of Mahogany'.

The branching and stalk count is great on 93P7, especially for rebloom. I'm so used to rebloom looking so tortured with stunted stalks and distorted blooms (if it happens at all). Granted, it is beside a building, but still, I'm impressed. Does that stalk at left have 4 branches AND a spur??

Thanks for humoring me through all my questions. I'm looking forward to seeing more from your French cohort(iculturist)s. :)
