Awwww, ain't it cute!

Very! Gonna get one?
Someday, Mo, when I win the lotto and can have my very own plant room, conservatory, and greenhouse(s). Ooh, and several experimental veggie gardens, and a Japanese garden (with my own bonsai), and an Elizabethan herb garden, and...
Korina (sicky-poo -- sore throat)
Fortunately 'Little Dragon' is easy to propagate from its freely produced stolons (unusual for a chirita) so it should be more widely available in a couple of years.
I'm surprised that Rob's Violets is able to offer it for sale already--and at such a reasonable price--as they obtained a single plant at an AGGS auction only two years ago.
As you said, Johnnie, it's easy to propagate.
A couple of years?? Waa!
'Instant gratification isn't fast enough.'
You know, the sore throat thing is going around. Hope you feel better.
OH, BTW, I have 4 tiny green dots that I'm thinking are C. Tamiana, and one has actual leaves on it. I planted them 4/18. (I only planted a very few, for the first time.) And, the begonias I sliced up have grown too! It's amazing how even just a little bit of a leaf will make a whole new plant.
Congrats, Mo; babies! Yeah, begonias are cool.
My tamianas are starting to get a little funky, but I raised their light a couple of inches -- I hope that helps.
Fortunately my throat hasn't been sore for a couple of days; but my voice has been in and out (I sound like a 13-year-old boy!) and I keep coughing up -- well, you don't want to know. It certainly makes answering the phones at work interesting.
Korina (feeling another Rob's order coming on)
Well, turned out it wasn't a Rob's order I felt; I was forced to go home early Thursday and stay home Friday because I was sicky-poo. My voice is coming back, slowly, and my plants *seemed* to have survived the problematic 'care' of my coworkers. Except for unplugging the lights on a timer and leaving on all weekend the lights that needed to be turned off (everything was dry as bone, but alive), they didn't do anything horrible.
