    I commented on Ron's thread that I had given my D anceps a really hard dry winter. Generally speaking, I don't think most of my Dends bloom any better for the dry period. However, my anceps is the exception. I have never had such a spectacular bloom as this year's. Granted, the plant is getting quite large, but it seems every single growth is in bloom.

    I didn't even try for a closeup; mostly out of laziness, but in part because a number of these have been posted recently.

    This plant makes me wish I was a better photographer...

    Very well done.

    FWIW - we never give ours a dry rest and it also had it's best blooming ever this fall/winter. Sadly we didn't get a pic of it.

    Thanks, friends!

    Yeah...about the dry rest...I'm not convinced it's necessary. Winter is typically a drier period, regardless of our individual growing conditions. Perhaps that is enough to satisfy the "dry, bright winter" requirement. I dunno yet. But I will try it again next year with the anceps, given the success of this year's bloom.
