Hi guys,

I grow my C. oliganthum as a group in a 1-gallon pot; they don't often 
bloom.  I think maybe the pot needs to stand in a saucer of water in the 
summer to get flowers.

C. minimum is in a 1-gal. (7 inches x 7 in.) pot, and blooms reliably every 
spring.  I can't get it to set a seed. BTW, Dave Lehmiller says this 
"minimum" in the trade is actually C.  walteri.

I grow my C. razafindratsiraea in a 2-gal. pot (22 cm x 22 cm); until I 
moved it to a large pot, it never bloomed.
