These are new to me as houseplants but I’ve found myself becoming quite fond of them…they have very vibrant coloured flowers from Summer to Spring ,fleshy leaves and need very little watering Regularly removing spent flowers encourages new blooms fairly quickly. Another positive is they are very reasonable price wise.

I like these and used to buy them for the winter months, online shopping and home deliveries in recent years stopped that tradition, I'm back to doing the shopping myself again now so I will keep a look out for some, they look good sizes and very healthy M'land.x

we also have several of these excellent little plants. They started Victoria on the road to her houseplant interest. I now look after hers as she has progressed onto more demanding species.
