This plant decorates itself with *light bulbs*.

Jonna,

Is this plant easy or difficult to grow? Any special requirements other than what is listed?

Hi Chelle,

It's not so difficult to grow. The seeds germinate well. The only thing is that the seedlings are very small,like primula's, so transplanting them is the hardest part. They bloom very long, until first frost.
I grew them last year for the first time, but will grow them again.

Hi Chelle,

I suppose you're the same Chelle as on Cubits (Hog Wild).
It will be my pleasure to send you the seeds (and some more if you have seen more interesting seeds on my website) in return for your help to write my article in English about sowing in vermiculite. Now I'm busy with sowing the seeds, but I will come back to you about this in 1 or 2 weeks.

My Slipper Flower seedlings are almost ready to go out in the garden. Hurray! I had no idea that they'd be such sturdy little things! I had thought that they'd be rather delicate as seedlings.

I'm so excited at the possibility of seeing blooms! Big Grin

Thanks so much, Jonna!

Chelle, I'm happy they grow well for you. They will grow big very fast.
