I’m not eligible for this month’s contest, but figured I join in anyway.
Gesneria cuneifolia— Not a cp, but still a finicky plant I am surprised I have been able to keep alive. Almost lost it twice. It requires moist, humid conditions. Had it growing and blooming well when I went upstate to visit my folks for Christmas last year. While gone, it dried out almost completely and the whole plant crashed. Thought I had lost it (and this is not a commonly available plant — can’t even remember from whom I got it). Much to my surprise there apparently was enough life left in the roots to allow a comeback. Even more surprising to me, the flowers must have been self-pollinating because I have seedlings galore.
Blessed are the "cracked" ... for it is they who let in the light.
