Cameroon Night [ (Cameroons x Tetra: Peacock Maiden)] is a 1996 Trimmer Introduction. It is the most wondefully awesome dark purple EM Blooming time spider/ufo available in my opinion. Royal Celebration is a large EM Bloom of the same color, but it is a much larger flower, and although Royal Celebration is supposed to have a higher bud count, it doesnt, it ends up being a space taker for many growers. However the bud count of Cameroon Night is awesome will put it to shame even though a smaller flower about 7.5 inches which is still good size bloom. an oldy but goody. Im going to put it between my 'ouachita beauty' an{apricot} spider and my 'wild horses' a {white with purple center} spider,both also 36 inch tall EM Bloomers. peace..mike
