    Very nice! Is three flowers normal for you? I am use to seeing only one or two.

    Welcome to OI, devitos. I only get 2 flowers. So maybe there is a secret we don't know.

    I didn't know that! It had 1 flower the first time it bloomed, then 2 the following 2 years. This is the 4th year I've bloomed it and somehow it has 3.
