Close up of the flower. Rio de Janeiro, early spring.
Just got this plant. Here in Brazil they recomend watering it with ice cubes presented on this picture. Early spring, Rio de Janeiro.
It got 3 flowers, one for each bulb. I hope I can keep it alive for the next year. Rio de Janeiro, early spring.
