Streptocarpus fanniniae (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Streptocarpus fanniniae (Gesneriaceae) It is a perennial creeping herb that has a tangle of creeping rooted “stems” up to 150 mm long, and a single big handsome oblong leaf. One or occasionally two inflorescence’s are borne immediately below the lamina. Many of the flowers open together. Sowing: For seed sowing you can use either seedling mix or normal potting soil. Because the seeds are so tiny it is important to scatter them evenly, using your hands, on the top of the soil medium. Do not cover the seeds with any soil. Give them a gentle watering /spray and then put them into the greenhouse /shade netting area. The trays must be kept within a temperature range of about 20°C. The area must be bright but it must not be exposed to full sun. Always keep the soil moist but not very wet. The tiny seedlings will normally appear within two to three weeks. Locality: Blinkwater. Harvest: October 2020
