Sinningia bullata by annied

Sinningia bullata

Not a Euphorbia this time - I still have quite a few more of them but identifying them when they are not flowering and the label just says "I am a succulent" can be frustrating.

Found this beauty in a nursery in the Blue Mountains last year. Emerald Forest (Sinningia bullata) is a relative of the African Violet. They produce a large above ground tuber that will continue to expand up to 20cm.
It’s mainly grown for its unusual crinkly foliage that has fluffy white fur underneath the new growth. It produces bright orange flowers most of the year.
Intriguing!

This is a perfect label for the plant, You should send it to the nursery.

Hi annie we're partners this week and I don't want to interrupt you plant theme.

Have a look at this website https://www.botanicalartandartists.com/botanical-photographers.html and I challenge you to take, or process, a photo in the style of either Anna Atkins or Charles Jones . Have fun 😊

Sorry I am so late posting. For your Get Pushed what do you think of travel? I hope you can return the favour by challenging me to something.

@la_photographic we are in lockdown so not travelling anywhere except to the shops/work and back.
July 29th, 2021  
@annied That is still travelling but if you prefer something else what about food faces (either make a face with your food or make a face on a single piece of food)?

why do i get the feeling you are behind in posting again? I really should write things down, i thought of a good challenge for you the other day but now i cant remember what it was...how about an interior , either a mundane slice of life or more styled suitable for house and garden magazine, depending on your mood!

Hello, I hope you have time for a get pushed challenge this week. You're challenge this week is to work with food photography.
August 22nd, 2021  
It appears that you have not been around to receive get-pushed challenges, lately. My challenge for you is to create a photograph with the theme, "coming back."
