Gardeners' Notes:

Even tho I've been a volunteer in a flower shop for 9 years making arrangements, I know little about indoor plants. When I saw these potted, I fell in love! I bought 2 plants and will carefully try to keep them alive.
Their history is very interesting and a little surprising.
I'll try to stay updated.
