The Fourth Anniversary

Primulina grown as 'Mini' Plants

           I’m into the fifth year of writing this Blog.  Before I started I wrote about 30 stories because I was afraid that I would not have anything to say later.

            I’m sure that I am the only one who has read every story. (Now 243).  But with the power of ‘search’, the real significance is when a random stranger finds my obscure observations about something that they care about.

            The most significant viewer increase always comes when someone else refers their readers to my Blog.

            It’s what Seth Godin and other smart marketers have been saying:  Word-of- Mouth is the most powerful type of marketing.  We value our friend’s opinions.

            When I started, Streptocarpus and Sinningias were my focus.  Now it is Primulina and ‘Mini’ plants. 

            Streptocarpus and Sinningias are terrific, colorful plants, but they require a very precise commercial grower and a very adventurous buyer.

            Asian Violets, like an African Violet, but better, are much easier to produce and survive as houseplants.
