    Platystele misera

    The flowers are small - about 5 mm across, but the plant really isn't that small - maybe 5-6 inches tall.

    Wimps Rule!

    I want Jane's plant and I want Gin's plant. Those are spectacular.

    Gilda - I have your plant and love it. I know it as Sigmatostylix radicans.



    Louis - you have a wimpette? I never would have guessed. You don't seem the type.

    Of course I have a wimpette. You'll see it tomorrow.

    If I can have a tillette, I can have a wimpette. And that's Miss Wimpette to you.

    I bet it's just some monster Catt you're going to cut down to size and try to pass off as a wimp. I know how you work. :lemmetell
