My Episcia

Double quantity than I had last year ... I should stop planting the stolons. The colorful foliage can last for a while before the winter comes.

very easy-growing

I like to handle the very easy-growing plants and only the tough plants can survive in my planting area. Although this calyx double sinningia is idyllic but we usually say the plants which grow and bloom by themselves are good plants.

Mid-Autumn Festival

Tomorrow is the Mid-Autumn Festival which is the 15th day of 8th month of Chinese lunar calendar. Usually this means the autumn is coming ... but the weather is still hot in the daytime ... fortunately the night is cool ... so it's no longer tough for plants.

Primulina 'Matsumushi'

This is a miniature Primulina hybrid with rosette foliage. I assume it's a Japanese hybrid according to its Japanese name. An easy-grower.

The show plants for this year were impressed. As I can see the flowers are the more the better because the hybridizers and growers showed their excellent skills.
