    P. 'Aphrodite' flowers

    I have had this P. 'Aphrodite' for well over a year now. It started blooming a few months after I got it and has never quit. It has kicked off two pups, which I just transplanted.
    I do not ever remember it not having a flower blooming and sometimes it has two or three spikes. Is it normal for them to bloom constantly?

    The plant.


    I just transplanted it two weeks ago and it has produced a new half open flower.


    A flower that survived the transplanting, I broke one off, and has been blooming for almost a month.

    yes, this one is an everbloomer. i've had some really large blooms on it too.
    Very showy when it has 3-5 flowers on one plant.

    I have another flower spike forming. These plants are amazing.
    We had a light west wind last night and it blew in all kind of flying critters from the glades. Ms. P. 'Aphrodite' is covered with food. Nothing like a good meal to promote flowering.
