another home-made pic, i'm afraid, i got told this was called a 'pincushion plant' by the man who sold me this yesterday, i can't find any info on it, can anyone give me a botanical name, all the pincushion plants are flowers, not like this help!! i really like it.. the orange circles are berries by the way, and the foliage is really small, it's only a small thing..

The pincushion is of the genus "Scabiosa".

Try searching for Scabiosa caucasica.

Lilith, to me it looks like Baby Tears, I think the latin name is Helxine or something like that. It loves high humidity and will take over a terrarium.
