2021-06-29 : The three of them have true leaves the size of the young ones, replanted them in the bigger container. Worried by the small root development.

2021-07-23 : Another one is out. One left and growing.
2021-08-15 : Quick growth after a long stale period.
2021-08-28 : Petals appearing.
2021-09-14 : First flower fully bloomed. Unexpected secondary flowers appeared at nodes due to the parents seeds being from an hybrid specie.
