This has happened before, last September, but it still amuses me, so I'm posting about it a second time.
This is also, it happens, a good excuse (okay, a fair to poor excuse) for updating everybody on the progress of 'Charlotte' and the other four plants I got from Asiatica Nursery last summer.
Chlorophytum 'Charlotte' is, as you can see, looking a lot like it did then. I think a lot of this is my fault. I was worried about overwatering it, so I put it in a small clay pot, and then frequently made it wait too long between waterings, which wasn't good. I recently moved it into a 5-inch plastic pot, which retains water considerably longer, and it has responded by flowering. Could be good, could be bad, but it's not dropping leaves, so I'm tentatively calling the repotting a good idea on my part. Now if I could only get it to grow. Overall, I'm sort of mildly fond of it. Three stars.
Aglaonema 'Thai Snowflakes' is deceased, as of last January. Can't give it a good review, as a result, even though the death was probably my fault somehow. One star.
Dieffenbachia 'Pacific Rim' has sprouted an offset, though it still leans, and it's still not incredibly interesting to me. I should probably cut it back and try to reroot the top: it was always kind of a leaner, and the situation hasn't improved with age. Three stars: it has yet to impress me, but it's also not a bad plant, either.
Pedilanthus 'Jurassic Park 2' has grown a third branch, and the previous branches are much longer, but otherwise it looks more or less the same. Until the move, it was in a south window, which sounds good until you consider that it was a ways back from the window, with many plants intervening, so it wasn't getting the kind of light implied by "south window." It's now in somewhat less-crowded conditions in the plant room, which gets west exposure, and that will have to be good enough, because that's as bright as the house gets and the outside space is already spoken for. Four stars.
Dracaena 'Indonesian Tracker' is still doing fine. It's also probably the only one of the five that I feel like was actually worth what I paid for it. Like the Pedilanthus, it's not a particularly fast grower, but it is, at least, growing, and it's presentable as a plant, where the other three all still look kind of unfinished, awkward, or otherwise not quite right. Four and a half stars.
