Orphans on the doorstep

Iwanagara Apple Blossom is the cross between Dialaelia Snowflake and Blc Orange Nugget, and it has a floral fragrance.

I just got four of these, two white and two yellow. They were bought in bloom from a local vendor and they have just stopped blooming. Their main care problem was under watering and indoor light while they were in bloom. These are both things that can easily be remedied.

Two of the plants had enough almost dead flowers to identify the color, but I don't know about the other two. I will have to keep them until they bloom unless I can come up with a creative solution. Since I do know they are one of each, perhaps someone would buy the pair.

I repotted all four and took them to Sonoma. Only one had decent roots and it was overdue for repotting. I up-potted that one. The rest went back in the same pot.
