Egyptian Star Cluster - Pentas lanceolata (part 2)

This was my busy weekend (last week) in sorting and setting all my unorganised plants.
Somehow placing the right plants in the right places seemed to be the greatest challenge.

I managed to trim and replant my star clusters and set them into many small pots together with Moss rose, Jewel of opal (3rd) and Globe amaranath - all not so visible here. Hoping in few weeks these plants will bloom in their best.

My red Star Cluster seemed to be doing fine so far. I was not confident earlier when my mum passed me a branch of this type for me to propagate it. Finally it flowered and there was hope for this plant.
I will probably take another few pictures after few weeks. Hopefully all in full bloom.
I had experimented this one by pinching the smallest node and planting it and was surprised that it survived by the orginal water jasmine which was going on it didn't.
