I have one plant of Vertigo but it has not yet flowered. It started out but because of the heating period the buds got very dry and did not develop. But now that spring has come I hope it will start.

Primulina Vertigo starts to flower like it would be spring time - the plant is sitting on a window sill facing East and it seems this kind of light triggers the blooming. Outside it is -17 C :shock:
