Streptocarpus johannis (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Streptocarpus johannis (Gesneriaceae) Port St Johns streptocarpus, Cape primrose. A perennial herb with a horizontal rhizome and a loose rosette of lightly hairy leaves up to 300 mm long. No stems are present and the leaves grow continuously from the base. Flowers are flat-faced, whitish to pale violet, sometimes with a bit of yellow colouring in the throat. 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: Nsikeni. Harvest: October 2022
