Twin flowers? But I can't see the zebra stripes?

This will make more sense of the common name Sticki........

It certainly has lovely markings and I like the flower, and its colour, just doesn't resemble zebra stripes!

27 Jun, 2011

 

Good job that I didn't name it then!!!!!

27 Jun, 2011

 

Easier to say than -aeschynanthus-marmoratus tho!

Naming plants would be rather a nice job!

Bat plant nice and simple!

27 Jun, 2011

 

I can spell it from memory too now!

I can spell bat plant from memory!!

I would have to work on aes-chy-nanthus then the marmoratus - reminds me of marmite!

28 Jun, 2011

 

Mmmmm, Marmite.......

28 Jun, 2011

 

Yes I love it. Real marmite baby!

28 Jun, 2011

 

But not Vegimite - yukkk!

28 Jun, 2011

 

When we have finished with the food Luvvies......yuk to both veggie and marmite..lol..but the plant is something else.....its gorgeous......

28 Jun, 2011

 

It was a little gem, but is now becoming rather a large gem Milky!

very nice Meanie,

28 Jun, 2011

 

I've just passed (so dropped in) the "very expensive garden centre" where I got this from. They have some very nice Columnea arguta (£12) and Alsobia dianthiflora (£8.50) in.

28 Jun, 2011

 

Were you tempted to get one?

(btw never tried veggiemite)

28 Jun, 2011

 

Don't bother Sticki - it's kak!!
I am, but I'm waiting until the weekend to consider the choice. At the moment I'm leaning towards this one......

That is very nice, does it go outside? How big is it?

28 Jun, 2011

 

Deffo an indoor plant Sticki - it trails about 20cm'ish.

28 Jun, 2011

 

I like it! Very special little plant

28 Jun, 2011

 

As is the Columnea Sticki!

Well I rather like that too, trailing and with those spectacular flowers

28 Jun, 2011

 

out of the two Meanie i think that i prefer the Alsobia dianthiflora the white flower is spectacular !

28 Jun, 2011

 

Tough call eh!
The Columnea could trail a metre or more, not sure about the ultimate length of the Alsobia......

28 Jun, 2011

 

I do like the White one but I think I like the red better.

28 Jun, 2011

 

There you go then Sticki - treat yourself (again)!!!

28 Jun, 2011

 

Computer is broken - will have to replace that first!

28 Jun, 2011

 

Can it not be fixed?

Another beauty Meanie .. I,m beginning to think you live in Kew Gardens ...... BTW .. I love Marmite ..

29 Jun, 2011

 

Now that would be nice Amy!

29 Jun, 2011

 

Not sure meanie, it will cost a fair amount to find out and it might be better to put that money towards the new one, had this one quite a while, used it and filled it up, the buttons aren't working any more, worn out I think.

29 Jun, 2011

 

There comes a time I suppose.......

29 Jun, 2011

 

I think so. I have had my money's worth out of this one so it's not so bad!

Question is do I go for apple or normal?

29 Jun, 2011

 

That's a matter of taste (excuse the pun).

29 Jun, 2011

 

Will have to go shopping then and have a bit of a play!
