Streptocarpus update No 3


By tanny


All the plants are starting to grow with the warmer temperature and longer daylight. Some are flowering earlier than others. The seedlings are also getting bigger and soon will be having a flower stem shooting up to excite me with their wonderfull colours. As I have cross pollinated some of them there will be some new colours to be seen, that makes this hobby the more exciting.

Lovely pictures Tanny, from another hooked Strep fan. They all look lovely and healthy, and especially the babies. Blue Leyla seems to be a good one and flowering well I find.

Hi Tanny.....have been wondering how your "babies" were getting on....I've made a start on collecting some of the American varieties and I have 8 (at the moment)
I couldn't resist buying the Chelsea Plant of the Year.....Streptocarpus "Harlequin Blue"...I'm really looking forward to it flowering.
