Some Plant Colour

Four years ago my family gave me a beautiful flowering plant (name unknown) for Mother’s Day. The plant has not flowered since, but I have enjoyed seeing its beauty everyday in my living room.

About a week ago, I noticed a little red amongst the green and was excited to see that my pot plant was about to show a little colour.

The flower has unfurled and is small – smaller than the ones the plant had when it was gifted to me. However, I am excited to see that after so long, the plant finally has bloomed.

As I sit on the sofa or at the dining table, I look over and cannot help but smile at its presence.

I am not sure how long the flower will last – or if another one will eventually show. What I do know is that I will enjoy it for the time it is present.

Do you have any flowering pot plants?

  1. How fun to have some plant and flower joy 😉
    And I wonder why it did not flower for four years – maybe the food and soil (I read Sylvia’s comment too)
    But i felt analogy here – sometimes our life can ha d periods like this – years of staying alive and holding our own but maybe not blooming – and then…. then comes a bloom.

  3. You should try giving it a high phosphorus fertiliser! Any flowering plants in the Araceae family (this one’s an anthurium) tend to do flower more vigorously when given some good ol’ phosphorus
