It came into my possession in a strange way, my eye fell on it when passing by a household articles shop in town who also have some neglected plants on a stand on the footpath.
There was something unusual about it apart from its dwarf size, the flowers seemed to be all male, I picked up the ill treated plant to have a closer look, and some little broken pieces fell on the ground. Hmm.. Whistling Green Grin! .. at home I potted them up, they took root quite fast and now I'm having the first flowers. The leaves are tiny with only 3cm ( a bit more than 1 inch) diameter, the flowers 1,5cm.

No Tiffany, it doesn't appear so, it probably has more a root system like f.ex. the B.semperflorens..
