Well, I have never seen one of these in flower. I have one myself, not as large as yours, and I almost threw it out, but perhaps I'd better hang on to it. Although I do wonder if my one is a different variety, as it appears to have larger leaves than yours.

It has only started flowering this past 3/4 years,Cinders,and it's over 20 years old...I think the leaves are on the smaller side,as it suffers badly from neglect! A bit more TLC is needed..I was definitely going to repot it last year..famous last words ! I think it flowers to remind me it's still here.:o)

First time I have seen them flower too Sandra, Im afraid I do neglect mine too at times, but may give it some tlc now after seeing how pretty it looks;0)

Thanks Carole..mine certainly doesn't get much TLC..maybe that's the secret? .probably stressed out ! :o)

Aha! In Tenerife these are roundabout plants and they are all covered in flowers, which I loved, as I've never seen them in flower before.

I bet they look wonderful,Karen..you will have to take a photo next time you go,please .I would love to see them :o)

18 Feb, 2014

 

Perhaps I did! but as I accidentally deleted all my pics, we'll never know :(

Wot you like,Karen ? I had forgotten about that....so that means you will have to force yourself to go again ! :o)

Nah...not going back there...seen it all now and didn't really like it. Staying in UK for a while...might even get my backside down to Lincs. to see family!

Much better idea,Karen..I've only seen the Airport,and the motorway to the port anyway..but we've never fancied a holiday there....I'm sure mum would be happy about that :o)

gorgeous specimen Sandra. Very stately.

Thanks Paul,I am quite attached to it,and taken lots of cuttings over the years..so easy to root..

It looks great. I had one but the cold got to it and they don't like cold at all - found out the hard way.

20 Feb, 2014

 

Oh dear..well.not the cold temps you get,I guess..This stays in an unheated Conservatory all and every winter..but it is frost free,with being double glazed..maybe you could keep it indoors,if you decided to get another at some point? This one did,at our last house..
We have been here 12 years,so it's not hard to please :o)

After seeing yours, I would like another one. Thanks for your advice.

20 Feb, 2014

 

Go for it Paul :o)

20 Feb, 2014

 

OMG! yours is flowering! I can't believe that, I didn't know they did.

21 Feb, 2014

 

Neither did I Waddy..first time was 4 years ago..and every year since...

21 Feb, 2014

 

I'd be happy with green leaves. Flowers? - That's a pipe-dream!

21 Feb, 2014

 

I too didn't realise the money plant actually flowers! It's lovely and well done Bloomer! Don't worry I tend to neglect my house plants at times! They can be very forgiving...!

21 Feb, 2014

 

It seems it's unusual to see flowers,on reading all your comments..probably means I'm either doing something wrong,or it likes being here..but thanks everyone..:o)
