Pocketbook Plant

Pocketbook Plant
This is the Pocketbook plant, one of the Calceolarias, usually part of the spring greenhouse display at Manito City Park. These are often used as gift plants, too, but are usually discarded when finished blooming, though it is possible to grow and rebloom them indoors.

Pocketbook? What a funny english name! In german, they get usually sold by "Pantoffelbrume" sometimes confusingly by "Frauenschuh" although they have nothing at all in common with a lady's stipper.
Don't remind me of what a joy they are as a gift and indoor plant. My dad asked me to pick one at the store for mothersday very, very long ago when I was a tiny toot. It took a proud place of honour on the coffee table after unpacking and then an all free surprise earwig showed up from one of the pauches. My mom was alas not much into earwigs, she screamed at the top of her lungs to remove the creepy crawler before it reaches any food. Dad, in order to rescue his wife in peril, toppled both the plant and the historic coffee pot of my mom's belated mom that had even survived bomb nights during WWII but now got damaged. It was such a nightmare, all of course because of me who had picked out that awful plant with the earwig.
Needless to say Calceolarias are not really a favorite of mine since that day...
