I bought this beautiful Justicia brandegeeana from Hua Hng recently and it is slightly different from the one that I planted in HortPark. This one really reminded me of its synonym Beloperone guttata, that I used to see in books and this name was the first time I learnt about this beautiful Shrimp Plant.

The whole inflorescence is more curved and the youngest bracts are yellow orange before turning to red. To me, this is more attractive than the variety with a less curved inflorescence and red bracts.

I also bought this other beautiful Episcia cupreata from Cheers and 3 pots of this red-veined cute looking new Fittonia cultivar. It just made my day.
