On plant Pentas



What is Pentas? Did you join GOY just on a quest to find some?!

1 Jun, 2009


Pentas Lanceolata is an essential nectar source in any butterflyhouse so I would love to get hold of one.
Yes I joined this site due to my interest in plants that are a little less easy to find.
I hope more experienced plants people will give me some good advice and point me in the right direction.
