It's a very old plant, too - a child in my class at school gave it to me years ago. Lovely pressy, wasn't it!

I'm trying to work out how old it could be....it might be around 30 years old!

They are lovely. I nearly had one of these as someone gave me a couple of leaves which I put in my pocked, meaning to put in a pot when I got home. Unfortunately 4 days later when I rememberd they were somewhat worse for wear. I'll be visiting again soon.

What a shame - and you had a 'senior moment' Toto - at your young age! LOL.

Thanks - I always look forward to the flowers on my elderly plant!

I'm ashamed to say that I can't remember much about the child - I seem to recall that her name was 'Alexandra' and she had long dark hair, but that's it!

That's a lovely colour ... I repotted mine in the winter .. it didn't like it and died , i've bought a new one , there's no sign of any buds on it yet so I've no idea what colour it will be , they were in a sale at Home base for .49p .. I am keeping the old one in case it decides to make a comeback .......

WOW! Amy, that was a fantastic price! I do hope it decides to flower soon! :-)

do you regularly propagate it? I do mine every so often. mine is a mere 15yrs old. this is a lovely colour.

No - never have, for some reason! I should, I suppose.

Really unusual colour - beautiful.
