Chris Larson 10/19 ... "Another new import is T. ionantha Bravo, but it won't be in Bunnings - a little more pricey. Not out for a while. It looks much better than my photo. I saw a similar photo before the import and thought "not bad". Was much more impressed when I saw the plants."
Chris Larson 02/20 ... "This plant is approx. 7cm tall when in flower. Nice fat recurved silver leaves. In commercial production in Asia. They flowered while in quarantine and, as the light was not bright there, it is difficult to know if the colour would have been better if the light was high."
