    Cool Dorstenia foetida or 'The Space Plant'

    We've had a single plant of this growing for years and over the last year, two volunteer plants popped up in other orchid pots. They are growing better than the 'mother' plant. I think the move into the new greenhouse and under a location near a ceiling fan caused the plants seeds to spread. I'm not complaining. I think these little blooms are fascinating.

    Interesting plant. Are you going to move them to their own pots?

    Yes. One of them came up in a pot with a dead seedling paph, so it has it's own place already. The other will be moved into her own container.
