An Unknown Succulent

That’s right.  This is an unknown succulent.  At least it’s unknown to me.

I have no idea what this plant is, but it’s pink. Well, at least the flower is pink when newly opened and that fits my criteria for my next photo in Becky’s ‘In the Pink’ Square in September photo challenge.

Newly opened flowers are pink, the older ones have faded, losing all their pink blush.

This was the tiniest little cutting given to me by my sister, and now, some 12 months down the track, it’s prolific, out of control, and desperately in need of repotting.  Caught up and twisted through another (currently flowering) succulent that’s also occupying the same pot, I’ve decided I’ll wait a little longer before disturbing either of them.

If you know what it is, let me know.  I’d be interested to know.  Those flowers are only 5 mm in size (0.19 inch). Only tiny, but ever so cute.

    1. You are so funny Kylie. Pittosporum actually is a plant family, but not the family this one belongs to. I’ll get a little cutting going for when I do see you next, and that won’t be in the office 🙂 Miss you heaps though.


I'd love to hear your thoughts . . .
