    The pictures are a little blurry but I can see it's a very pretty flower:D . I love its color, it's so vivid! I also like the shape of it, it looks really interesting. It's exciting when our plants bloom, isn't it?:D

    It's so cute! :D These flowers really remind me of little dolphins. Is growing this plant difficult? Does it need anything special?

    This is a lovely plant. I was wondering if the dolphin plant was an indoor or outdoor plant and got my answer from google. One article states that the dolphin plant is also called the "goldfish plant." However, I've had a goldfish plant before and the blooms do resemble a small goldfish and are not as large as the blooms of the dolphin plant. It appears to be the same plant except the blooms are obviously different. It's primarily an indoor plant that needs lots of sun to thrive. A teaspoon of Epson Salt is supposed to assist in the blooming.
