Okay, I don't renounce the Gesneriaceae and all its works.
Though the Streptocarpus have broken my heart, the Saintpaulias force all manner of indignities upon me, the Aeschynanthus turns a deaf ear to my pleading, and the Episcia fill me with mortal terror, at least the Nematanthuses appreciate me.
The plant in question was repotted recently, and has been dropping leaves all over the place ever since. Of course, it was dropping some leaves before, too. (Why did I repot, this time of year? I was having trouble keeping it watered, and figured that whatever trauma was caused by the repot would be less than the trauma of drought stress every two weeks.) I hadn't noticed any buds or blooms until I went over to it yesterday to sweep up the dropped leaves, and then I found two. Which is not a spectacular show, but perhaps it's only warming up. The solid-orange Nematanthus (previously pictured) has six blooms in progress on a single plant, four of which are big enough to see. Which actually is sort of a show, or will be soon.
