Plant People: The Same Everywhere

We recently hired a new domestic helper to assist with the care of my mother. This ladies name is Carmen.

It turns out that Carmen is a plant person. Today she brought me some pups of a Guzmania and several of a Vriesea. Yesterday she brought some flowers of an Aristolochia that she grows in her balcony garden. This with a promise of seeds when available. We of course will reciprocate with things we have in our collection.

She said that the best way to keep a plant is to give it away. I have heard the same thing in the States.
