This August my self-grown matucana madisoniorum flowered for the first time. I was very excited about this and then equally disappointed when the flower didn't last all that long.
I managed to take a couple of pictures of it, but didn't really get what I would have liked out of it.
And now I looked over my windowsills and saw that my dear matucana will be flowering for the second time this year.
All the other matucanas (same age) still aren't showing the slightest signs of flower buds but this one wants to go again.
