Sometimes I like Primulina but sometimes I dislike their bulky size and short-lived flower. So I usually position them under my planting rack where they receive less sunlight because many Primulinas tolerate shade condition and still grow well. Only when they blooms, they will just be pulled out for photography ... like this poor Primulina Kitaguni. :-)
I had a self-service trip in the state of Sabah, Malaysia at the end of August, this place is famous for its various endemic flora and fauna. Although the territory of Sabah keeps under exploitation so far, visitors still can find the interesting nature in some reserved areas.
I found this Aeschynanthus sp. on my way back to Kota Kinabalu, the capital city of Sabah while the van went through the Crocker Range. This plant is totally out of my knowledge of Aeschynanthus species, so I don't know the ID. I can only see it's a bit different from the current known Aeschynanthus species, as for the name ... it will be very appreciated if any one may know the answer. :-)
This Mini-Sinn. shows a compact foliage but extreme flower in large size. The clear-cut color is also adorable. One more feature is worth to be mentioned, the flower keeps almost the same size in summer, just the color becomes lighter than it does in spring. A Windsor's hybrid.
