Kalanchoe

Kalanchoe (kalanchoe manginii)

Another shot of my new favourite thing!!
Apart from being only 20mm in size, the blooms remind me of Lapageria (the seeds of which I'm still waiting to germinate).

Thank you Homebird!

See you found a name for it Meanie! I thought that about the Lapageria too, but think that had slightly more "material to the skirt" so to speak.

The Lapageria is a very different plant, but at least these flowers will remind me of it until my seeds germinate.....

You are certainly widening my vision where plants are concerned Meanie! Glad the others are going on okay.

Meanie:

The Kalanchoe is blooming really well for you. I've never seen one bloom indoors...as all Kalanchoe species are grown outdoors here.

I just buy the things that I like Tet!
I'll post a picture of the whole plant Delonix.
They wouldn't have a hope outdoors here........

Meanie:

Yes, I'd like to see it. :>)

I know most Kalanchoe species will melt at temps above freezing. I've seen it happen in the colder parts of the San Francisco Bay Area.
