Someone recently put up a link to a great site for columnea and other plants. If I had not seen the link and gone for a look, I would have really wondered what my plant was up to. Thanks to the link I now know it is fruiting instead of blooming this round. They are very interesting looking and both my plants are doing the same thing. Recently I had a reason to order some plants and included two more columnea's, a yellow one "Goldilocks" and a red one "Firebird" and can't wait for them to start blooming.
