    The bottom left plant is an oxalis, grown from small bulbs. It also comes in a green that looks the same as the red with small flowers. The bottom right is an Irish moss, I think. The large top plant? I don't know.

    Does anyone know the names of these that she is referencing? I'm trying to buy the bulbs but can't seem to find them, I have listened to the video but can't make it out. Thank you

    I'M SO GLAD TO FIND THIS ARTICLE BECAUSE I'VE JUST GOT THIS PLANT (THE RED ONE) FROM MY AUNT WHO LIVED FAR FROM MY CITY. EVEN I DON'T KNOW WHAT ITS NAME BEFORE UNTIL I READ THIS. I USUALLY CALL THIS AS BUTTERFLY BECAUSE IT'S LOOK LIKE BUTTERFLY. NOW I KNOW HOW TO TREAT THIS BEAUTIFUL PLANT. THANK YOU MARTHA...
