Schlumbergera truncata / Thanksgiving Cactus FlowerWe proudly present you with more pictures of our flowering houseplants!

It has nearly been a month since we last updated, which has unfortunately become a pattern in the last few months, but Annah and I hope to resolve this problem as soon as possible.

Schlumbergera truncata / Thanksgiving Cactus FlowerThere are several reasons why we have not been updating on a regular basis such as both of us still being busy with work, the fact that we do not have internet at home, we have been commuting about 40 miles or more during the past few weekends to visit with family and friends, the weather has not been the most suitable for buying and transporting plants (so we cannot write about new plants), and the last reason is a large majority of our plants are not really that exciting at the moment.

Aeschynanthus radicans / Lipstick Plant FlowerI took more pictures of the flowers on our Lipstick Plant (Aeschynanthus radicans) which developed into full and complete flowers. I really like the little red flowers that this plant produces.
