Thanks Milky. Little wood greenhouse. :-)

Nematanthus gregarius, the goldfish plant. There are links to the blossom pics on the right or in my garden. Waxy somewhat succulent looking foliage on long hanging branches, blooms along the branch orange goldfish looking blooms with little mouths, two on the plant now. It has really done well right here. Daylight is on the house already four hours, and some hits this plant directly. It does have 14 hours of light all the time, in a high indirect position. Just started blooming again after a green winter. :-) I think its loving it!

Thanks Gilli. It's forming buds all along all the cuttings I was ready to remove. I waited a little too long. I'm sure I can find some that would still strike well. Once I trust the shipping conditions a little more. Still cold around here.
