In my backyard I had my first bloom of Alophia veracruzana.  What is really
notable about this is that I sowed the seed (from SIGNA) on February 15,
2011 and transplanted the plants to a larger pot in May.  Less than 6
months from seed to bloom -- not too shabby.
I'd have taken a picture but for two reasons.  1.) The wiki has a number of
nice pictures of this species.  2.)  I noticed the bloom in the morning,
but when I went out in the afternoon, the flower had collapsed upon itself.
From what I see, I'll have a few more blooms to admire in the near future.
