    I've seen my grandparents grow money plants, my mum, myself and my father-in-law, over 30 years in total and I've never seen one flower 'in the flesh' so to speak.........until now, I have one in flower!!

              It's lovely...it's reminded me of the one my mum had for years but I never saw it flower.

                It looks good and healthy. I have one that I hope will flower this year. So pretty.

                  Not that old Keith, it was grown from a largish cutting about 3 years ago, but I do keep them 'dry' between September and March giving them little or no water, so I don't know if that's what has helped :)

                    Just done a quick Google :snork: and apparently lots of sunlight through the spring & summer, followed by slightly darker and dry conditions through the winter, along with being kept slightly root bound encourage flowering :)

                      It's a plant that has been on my wish list for a good number of years and have never got around to getting.

                      Yours is gorgeous, Bilbo, such delicate looking blooms and the perfect time of year to bring some sunshine into your home :blue thumb: Well done, you!!
