This plant is insanely stressful but one of my favorites. I had to hack half the plant off a few years ago to keep her growing due to some serious infestation, then she teased me just January with two blooms. One never opened, the other for just a day (usually you get two or three) and I didn't get a picture! Now she's added two leaves but it's trying to grow entirely outside the pot and will require staking.

She's by far the moody teenager of my plants, I am pretty sure she keeps a journal of my failings as a plant mom and communicates with gnats on social media.

She is beautiful. Your plants all look so healthy and strong. I cannot wait for the day that we discover houseplant social media.

Thank you for the kind words!

I am mildly terrified of what social media for houseplants might look like. Imagine the drama between ferns? I can see it now:

Inspirational fronds or inflammatory foliage, you decide! Alligator fern refuses to spore for friends. Maiden hair calls out austral gem.
