The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Hi everyone,

So, when my best friend came over to visit yesterday, he brought with him a cutting of pubicalyx Red Buttons, from which the mother plant was started from cuttings of my own plant that is now deceased. I have it all potted together in a pot along with the plant I got from Joni earlier this summer. The best part is that the cutting from my friend and his mother has one tiny peduncle on it! Perhaps, one of the best Christmas presents I have ever recieved lol.

Congratulations! I too love to give gifts of Hoyas! As people care for them, they will always have the gifter on their mind! They make wonderful presents potted in special pots too.

Thank you, Mary and teisa!

Here are pictures of my newly potted up Red Buttons. So excited for the little peduncle!


I also have decided to be brave and give African Violets a second try. I picked up this little beauty Friday at a local (little) Christmas Tree show held by our local garden club. Here's a picture of that too.

Check out the underside of this leaf. There are only a couple on my plant like it. Perhaps it's a light issue?
