Mike's Blog - Day 107

Yet another tropical one for you, Brazilian Plume; Kings Crown; Paradise plant or Flamingo plant.

Closer.

Even closer!

We have it named as Jacobinia pohliana, but I think it has had a name change to Justica carnea these days. So there you go, half a dozen names to choose from.

The stick insects seem to leave it alone, it has slightly furry/felt like leaves which must put them off.

Bills not sure if the bamboo is growing or it’s just his imagination. I’ll put a marker stick next to it tomorrow.
