Leaves, stem and flowers are all a salmon pink colour, except the young leaves. They are light green. The leaves grow in small clusters and seem to be getting young leaves from the heart of the bigger old leaves. It seems this plant multiplies by dropping some new plants into the soil underneath. The flowers are exquisite. The plant does not need much soil as it has just happily settled in an old wheelbarrow with some mud or left over dirt.
In a rusty wheelbarrow at the back of a house. 1800m above sea level in the mountains of Colonia Tovar, Aragua, Venezuela.
I spotted this plant and its gorgeous flowers while passing by and when I started to take the pictures about 6 other people stopped to admire the little stubborn plant! I asked the owner of the house for some cuttings and hoping it will keep and grow! If anyone of you have any idea's what it is or what I need to do to grow it please let me know. Thank you
