One of the bublets Maria gave me in 2008 is blooming for the first time in my care - the Exotic Star. So it roughly takes around 2.5 years from bublet to bloom.
I really like the bold color and especially the veins, very striking indeed.
A member from Garden Web mentioned that Exotic Star is a hybrid of Papillio, and it is difficult to pollinate it.
I'm going to cross ES with other blooms I'm having at the moment. Hope I might have some beautiful cross in the future.
