    How big is that plant? Looks like a nice size. What sort of plant is hanging to the left of it?

    It is a pretty good size, although smaller than the Dgmra StarsAndBars and Odbrssa Kenneth Bivins. The longest leaves are a good 18-20 inches.

    The hanging plant next to it is a variegated Hoya Compacta, or Hindu Rope Plant. This one is especially cool because three of its growths are producing yellow and red leaves right now. I have a couple of Hoyas, with the longest "rope" about 4-4.5 feet long--it was a cutting off a plant that had passed down a couple of generations- supposedly 80 years old!!

    Beautiful. I hope you will post in the Land Plants category a photo of the Hoya plant. I would love a closer look!

    Cheers,

    Very nice! How short lived is 'short lived'? Did you get it already in flower or did it spike in your conditions? I just ordered a Bssdm. Shooting Star 'black gold' a couple days ago so am very interested to find anything out. Thanks in advance!

    I've never seen something like that before. It's pretty neat. And amazing to be passed down from a plant that old! I may have to keep my eye out for one of those in my area

    nen- It only bloomed about one-two weeks. I got it in spike. I hope you have better luck keeping yours in bloom.
