Fuschia Golden Marinka

This is from European Uprights a hybrid called Golden Marinka I'd guess due to the variegation on the leaves of chartruese and pale yellow green. Lovely hot pink and deep purle dancer blooms, thin and bright. It has a hanging habit that I think is due to the greenhouse care. I'm going to cut it back and try to establish a more upright plant through spring. It has been slowly growing indoors through winter in an indirect lighted window, no signs of flowering since bringing it in. The variegation is not prominent indoors either. No real special care, cut back in early spring to shape and take spring cuttings.
