    I've started this thread so that we can share our houseplants as they come into bloom.
    Add a few notes if you can about care etc so that we may create a mini database.

      Aeschynanthus "Mona Lisa" blooms in flushes, and since the house move seems to have produced one flush after the other.

      I placed it facing north west'ish which seems to really agree with it. I allow it to almost dry out between watering.

      I bought this Streptocarpella earlier this year. Placed in the same window as the Aeschynanthus it has produced a steady number of blooms all summer. Another that is almost allowed to dry out between waterings.

                            Isn't it just the coolest thing Sal!!!!:hapydancsmil:

                            I did, but that is dry. I reckon that it would do well to produce anything more than leaf in the border though..............
