Hi,

One of my kids took a liking to the plant pictured below, which was on Gert's stall at EEE2011. I bought it but forgot to ask Gert what it was so does anyone know?

Looks like some window plant(Fenestraria) for me. I remember watching some document where David Attenborough talked about them.

Thank you. Found this after your post, which makes reference to David Attenborough's ' The Private Life of Plants: A Natural History of Plant Behaviour' book: http://www.asknature...5818191b29f60f5

Indeed, it is a window plant! I forget the scientific name though...

It's a Fensetria allright, I think F. rhophalophylla.

Hi,
Looks more likely to be Frithia pulchra to me, the flower colour will settle it, fenestraria will be white, Frithia pink.

More info here;
