      • Although they were available for a long time, I think they became popular in the late 1960s, just in time for the houseplant fad of the early 1970s. Not only were they available in nurseries, but they were one of the first plants, and perhaps ‘the’ first that became available from the florist counters in supermarkets, probably because they are so small AND bloomed.
