We're ah, not known for our patience here in Philly, so I cut the fattest bud off...
and forced it to open!
After 24 hours it was half way, by 48 hours it was completely open.
I would have bet a dollar that I was expecting double crimson red from this new plant,
but "surprise" it's a fluffy, lovely white instead:@)
I wonder where I planted the red one?
Have a happy day!
