Streptocarpella 'concord blue'

Species: streptocarpella.

This little thing sprouts long stems with little purple violets at the end. Can turn into a substantial bush from what I have read. Mine has been leggy and a slow grower. Leaves like the african violets fuzzy and thick with a real appealing growth pattern of three leaves. Mine likes to bloom in fall mostly with enough light. Remember, fall in Fairbanks, AK is August, September.
