    This is one that can be easily overlooked when in bloom because of colour & it's small size .The flowers are on little wiry stems that move easily with just a whisper of a breeze.

    Jane, that's great! You're right, if you hadn't said that this was in bloom, I almost wouldn't have seen the flowers! Very nice plant, too!

    Do you hang it up vertical or horizontal? Also, can you ever take off the fishing line. I mean when it gets established and everything?

    I hang it vertically.This plant just creeps all over the cork and is very flat . I probably can now remove the fishing line as it has been on there since Sept.'02 so I'm sure the roots have adhered--just haven't bothered

    Peter, the plant has two flowers on it. Look all the way at the bottom of the cork. The last "blob" at the bottom on the right
    is one of the flowers. Happy searching.

    Jennifer, I'm color deficient so I don't see that color. If I look very hard, then from Jane's description, I can actually make out the shapes of the flowers.
