Orange Star Flower Resurgence

In December, I wrote about an Orange Star Flower that I had received for Mother's Day 2011 that was beginning to emerge from hibernation after I had placed it in a closet.  I had hopes that I could force it to bloom before its time.  But little did I know of this particular plant.
Although the greenery began to grow, it did not begin to bloom until it was good and ready.  Here it is, just in time for this year's Mother's Day.  It is not quite as prolific with orange stars as it had been when I first received it, but it is thriving nicely.  And it looks like there are more blooms to come throughout the spring and summer.
Until my daughter gave this plant to me, I had not heard of it before. I think it is fast becoming one of my favorites.
