The pot is about 25cm across. The flowers are 1-2 inches wide. It hasn't rained for almost a week. We had floods prior to that. It was about 40 Celsius yesterday.

I am hopeing to get some seeds but I will have to wait and see. Not sure about nutrients in the media. I haven't heard about that. They do grow in very dry soil. Mine is in a mix of peat moss, 20mm rock, sand and perlite. They are sensitive to overwatering.
