    I have a small collection of promeneas .They qiuickly grow into specimens, and with care, will flower all round the pot, as here. They are so easy that it is too easy to neglect them - and then they start to go off - as here, I must admit. A big repot is called for - I use sphagnum moss for them, and maybe I can get them back to to scratch. But still perhaps, worth showing.I thought so, anyway.

    Well worth showing! We've had a week of 28-30 c here. Got mine into the basement as soon as the forecasts for that started.

    Looks nice. Recently a friend gifted a seedling sized Promenea. Will have to see how it adapts to our weather.
