Readers Take Over


Hello. Just wanted to share my Clusia orthoneura story with you.

I bought the last one you had a while ago. It was exactly the one that was photographed for your newsletter and Web site.

After keeping it all this time about five feet from an east-facing window, I began wondering if it was plastic. It changed not one bit from the time I got it, and still looked exactly like its photo.

Finally, I decided to move it directly in front of the window and put myself on alert for any signs of sunburn.

It has been a month, and in that time, every branch has sprouted a pair of new leaves, and I even see a flower bud.

I’d say the plant needs very bright light. It now gets direct morning sun and seems to have no complaints.

Best!

Joe

If you look closely at the enlargement, you’ll see Joe also has a bloom coming!
