It Seems Everything But the Hoyas Are Flowering...

Yes, this is my African Violet. It is a really happy bunny at the moment. These plants seem to go through periods of misery, not growing, not really doing anything, then they get used to their surroundings and decide to flower. This one has flowered twice in fairly rapid succession so I'm really pleased. It's at work and not in any direct sunlight, and fairly cool (we all freeze at our desks!). It sits on a pebble tray and gets watered very infrequently. I hope it'll be ok over the Christmas period when they shut all heating off in the department. I think it's a real tough plant.

PS you may guess from this picture and the one of the Schlum I'm not the tidiest person ever!!
