This plant has surpassed itself this year,and has never looked as good .In comparison to my recent photo,I never expected it to get even better..I can see that the flowers are now getting a tinge of brown now,so I will be trimming them off shortly..It has even been outside during the day,in the lovely sunshine this past week..another first !

This was the photo I posted previously..

Today’s photo..

Ah well,I hope it does as well in 2020..!:o)

Sandra, I'm playing 'catch up' on GoY for a half hour or so after a couple of hours doing a Spring clean! Shattered now. Your plant is fab-u-lous and I can only hope mine, a little cutting gifted by Hywel, grows as well.

If I played 'catch up'Shirley it would take much longer than a couple of hours ,I think ! Lol.thank you,I'm sure if you treat it mean, it will do it's best to impress you...it worked for mine ..ha ha.xx

Sandra I am going green with envy, yours is the first one that I'd ever known to produce flowers up until this year, mine never has ever rewarded me, I have treated it mean and I've cossetted it to no avail, Kath (Trowels on FB ) who used to be member here has been showing us hers because it has for the first time produced flowers, not as glorious as yours mind but it is a start...

5 Mar, 2019

 

Sandra, the couple of hours were spent doing house work, just a half an hour on GoY!!! Mine is on the kitchen windowsill and gets watered when I remember ... not often then!

5 Mar, 2019

 

So glad someone else..(Kath) has got flowers on hers now..I was beginning to feel as though mine was a bit of a freak..ha ha..I wonder how long she has had hers? just you hang on in there,Sue,you might be pleasantly surprised one day..I do hope so ..xx

Sorry,Shirley,I misread your comment..I really think it would have been more interesting,if it had been the other way round! ha ha..one of my cuttings(now quite big) is also on my Kitchen windowsill..gets any afternoon sun,and I have started watering both cuttings, and the flowering one..only the once,as yet...like yourself,when I remember :o)x

Your 'Money Plant' is doing you well, Bloomer! 😀 It really looks fab-u-lous! 😀

7 Mar, 2019

 

Thank you Balcony..I've had it so long,it feels like part of the family :o)
