Thank you ... it's called Greenfinch, but doesn't look very green to me.

Neither do some greenfinches! It is certainly unusual - rather fascinating.

Why do they call them Greenfinches if they are not green lol ... I bought this because I thought it would be green so I'm quite disappointed with it :(

I suppose they are green, but sometimes they look a bit muddy-coloured! They certainly aren't budgerigar green.

Greenfinches are a bit multi-coloured, almost camouflage- like I think and your little plant is the same. I like it a lot - I used to have a canary with this colouring :)

I like the bright green Auriculas you see, and I thought this would be like that ... so I am a bit disappointed.
I'm trying to think of it in a positive way, but I can't help feeling rather disappointed that it isn't a nice bright green ... :(
