There is one called ‘Vera’ that looks similar but not sure it’s exact match. What do you think?

@richard.spicer.7906 thanks had a look but still not sure. Pictures vary from one site to another. Looked at one called candy floss on here but there were several completely different varieties posted under the same name @ukgardentags !

Has 5 flowers now! Don't think it is Apple Blossom though as it looks nothing like it's supposed to! Either it was mis-sold or I have muddled it up with another bought (but not planted) at the same time and they were sold in separate boxes so not sure if that was even possible

I keep thinking of buying one are they easy me and indoor plants don't have a good track record @trees.p

@carolgs really easy and so rewarding as they grow so quickly. Great this time of year when there isn't much else to grow. This is a new one-my challenge is getting last year's ones to flower again as I didn't feed them but I have repotted with a little fresh compost

Wow! Is is supposed to be this color?

@wesleybrian no-it had started growing in it's box so has been deprived of light therefore unable to make chlorophyll/photosynthesise. Will be interesting to see if it recovers now exposed to light

It was, ahem, etiolated. One of the few things I remember from science at school. 😇 @wesleybrian
