Oh my goodness, its quite incredible, never seen one like this before Meanie, where are you getting them all from.

He he!!
I can't tell you how hard it's been waiting until I have a fully opened flower so that I could post a picture! Now I can post lots up.
Yorkshire; I got it a week or so ago from a local nursery - they like to keep an interesting selection of house plants too. It can be found in the wild in Swaziland.

your getting more and more tropical Meanie, are you feeling any better now.

27 Oct, 2010

 

Don't feel so bright today, but my mate Aran who had it a couple of years ago reckons that's normal. Generally, mostly better though.

No - it'll be at least another week!
I'm busy doing the invoicing, and chasing the debtors up!
