Yesterday, while taking Iain's picture, he discovered my clivia. It's a houseplant that was very popular with the Victorians, but isn't so common today. We had them growing in the shade (they love shade) outside our house in California, so I bought one for a houseplant when we moved here. It has never bloomed (a shame, because the flowers are lovely - like small lilies), but it's healthy enough.
Iain was very interested.
