While checking on the downstairs plant lab the other day I noticed my Streptocarpus had started to flower. It’s an unlikely time of year for exotic blooms but I suppose it’s loving life under my new grow light setup. Native to South Africa, Streptocarpus is a relative to African Violets. I’m somewhat new to this genus of plants but so far it’s proven to be a tough, easy to grow specimen. The flowers are out of this world vibrant, almost iridescent.
A nice plant indeed. If anyone might know the species please get in touch.
