What a lovely, delicate little flower. I had to look it up and read about them.
Mariolyn, do you know anything about Robbie - - whether he is OK or not? A lot of people are getting very worried about him.
I used to have one long long ago. I enjoyed it then.
Some existences just don't like good food, Varda!! Plain water, thanks!!
Hanne, this is "Sinningia pusilla", miniature slipper gloxinia. It is a wonderfully satisfactory plant for your window sill - - just give it a little water and bit of humidity and it will bloom happily away. Not only that, but it will re-seed itself, and if you should forget to water it for a while it will re-grow from the little tubers. It doesn't seem to need fertilizer, either. I gave it some once, and it got rather offended!
Oh, they are sweet!! Thanks so very much Varda!!
I don't recall having seen these before. They're quite lovely. Thanks for showing them to us...............
