January Calendar Picture
Happy new year, dear readers!
I bought this in a flower shop in Salzburg in October 2015, because I’d never seen it before, not even in a book. They said they’d propagated it themselves, but I didn’t think to ask where they’d gotten the original plant from.
And then it took me almost a year to find out what it’s called, because it’s not a Tradescantia, as I’d initially assumed – it’s called Tinantia pringlei.
It’s a pretty easy-to-grow plant, but also very prone to mealybugs in my experience.
