You must be doing something right Sandra , its a lovely specimen .. is it living up to its name ? Haha

2 Feb, 2019

 

It is obviously a very happy plant in just the right spot. Have you had it a long time?

2 Feb, 2019

Thank you M.land nice to be back...it's been a while ..x

Thank you,3d..it flowers most years now..think it's age thing ! lol..It gets a trim now and then,to keep it's shape..

It does seem happy Janey,and I would be happier if there were lots of pounds instead of pennies..ha ha..are you still in Tasmania,sunning yourself ?? Lol.will pm you soon..x

Yes,it's still going strong,Hywel,and thank you.I've had lots of cuttings from it,which root so easily..nice to keep the original going,just in case !x
.
Thanks Amy..ha ha..It seems to be..we aren't on the bread line yet ! Lol.xx

Thank you Chris..and yes,a very long time..approx 30 years !It has had everything possible done to it,roots chopped off,and the sides sliced off like a Kebab ,so it could be repotted into the same size pot..:o) yes,I know I'm a cruel person,but it's seems to thrive on it ..Lol.x

Thank you Shirley,and I'm sure your gifted one from Hywel will do just as well..It helps when a plant is almost indestructable,whatever the conditions :o)..and yes,we are snow free now,and to be honest we were very lucky,as it didn't last long..very Icy nights though ! :o( x

Thank you Lindak..it's one of those plants that seems to do well almost anywhere..except of course a dark shady place..It's so cold in the Conservatory,but it doesn't seem to affect it at all..It lives outside in summer...x

Thank you Sheila..I'm surprised it's happy,after the treatment it gets,or the lack of it ,which is nearer the truth Lol.
I did Google it once,and it said it flowers when stressed ...aint that the truth ! lol x

You shape it well Bloomer I wish we could flower as we get older lol.

2 Feb, 2019

 

Oh Sandra that's just not fair. The one I had never flowered and then the weevil got. 😕 I 've now got a baby one, so I live in hopes. Yours is fantastic!

2 Feb, 2019

 

well,we all look better for a light haircut,3d..ha ha.and maybe we do flower,in a different way :o) x

3 Feb, 2019

 

Oh,Julia,I wish I had known you lost yours..if your new one doesn't flourish,you are more than welcome to have one of my established ones..and just so you don't give up hope ,it took mine approx 20 years before it flowered ! Lol.xx

3 Feb, 2019

 

I'll be heading for my nineties by then...;-0

3 Feb, 2019

Great looking plant & with so many flowers! 😀

6 Feb, 2019

 

I just commented on your blog, Sandra, saying I had never seen one before, but didn't realise it was the Money plant. I didn't know it flowered !

1 Mar, 2019

 

Yes .I've read it Rose.and thank you :o) I've often wondered why it's known by different names..I always knew of it as a Jade plant..can't see the connection to be honest ! lol..I didn't know it flowered either,but I'm not complaning ..lol x

1 Mar, 2019

 

ah thanks for the name - there is one in Chinese takeaway and I love them , knew it was money plant but not its proper name

10 Mar, 2019

 

Glad you now know the correct name,Paul..I didn't for years,till I saw one on here a few years back ..lol.I think a lot know it as Money,or Jade plant.I still call it as either:o)

Ours had one flower this year!! yours is amazing Sandra...!!

29 Apr, 2019

 

Thank you Angela..the flowers have been taken off now,and it's been repotted ..with a struggle ! Lol..It's had the Saw taken to it again..short back and sides,so I could get some new Cactus/succulent compost around it..it took quite some time ! Let's see what it does next year..sulk,maybe ?? Ha ha.x

30 Apr, 2019

 

Youre brave, ours is probably pot bound......

1 May, 2019

 

Mine was pot bound,Angela..and this is the third time it's been mistreated like this...but it has come back better each time...It's very daunting the first time you do it,but taking a deep breath ..Lol.x

2 May, 2019

 

I will send it up to you....lol!

2 May, 2019
