That's my biggest mystery, since they are indoors (no frosts) they appear to be quite content sitting there smiling out the window! flower

I would like to repot them and try and get a few of the new shoots started in other pots, but I don't want to start until they quite blooming.

Gosh, there's a whole industry based on decapitating flowers from their parent plants. They will grow back.

And more importantly, it's the non floweriong shoots that grow back that are ideal for cutting material.

Actually, these two varieties are great for bonsai, so I plan on starting a "few". I'm also lookig for 2 other varieties, one is all yellow and the other is a rust color. All for have the same flower shape

One branch with three blossoms broke off moving them to the bonsai show. I stuck it into the pot and appears to have taken hold already. I need to finish putting together my cutting chamber. I have all the parts, I just need to get the aquarium home from work.
