Hey Jason, those are lovely flowers! Are you sure it’s from Apus? It’s flowers are all yellow, same as Hercules and a couple of others, being Pulidonis hybrids. ☺️

comment
Jasonsparkes1

They are really pretty, I've moved mine to the 'prime' windowsill, the only one that gets good light all the time 😉 hopefully she prefers it. Do the flowers stay as bells or open more? @hayleyaj

comment
hayleyaj

I haven't had one before like this Jason, but mine are dying off now. Perhaps the bigger the plant, we'll get to see what happens. She does need lots of light though so she doesn't "stretch" 💛💛
